Thanks. I've sent Jeffrey a letter at the gte address. The link I had
which went directly to the Uncle Remus pages didn't show Jeffrey's home
page address. You helped me find that.
I agree that it would be a small job to retype those 60 +/- pages, but I
didn't want to start over - I just wanted to help finish the project if
he was interested.

that potential project for me.
