Andy, you also made this remark:
>There are a lot more readers than those who post regularly
>(generally we're called lurkers). I appreciate that we do have
>those who keep the information flow going.[...]
Well... while you were some where `lurking' -- I had made this
proposal to everyone one on the list:
>[...] If not would any of you over-seas collectors be interested
>in trading this book (or any other stories we Yanks may not have)
>for copies of "The Captain Kentucky Collections" (Volumes I-III)
>or the two "The Pertwillaby(sp?) Papers"?
This also entails *ALL* of my fellow countrymen... even ones who
live in Wisconsin (just kidding :-) So unless you want to
specificly enlist help from Don himself I'm pretty sure I can get
them for you!
