End of passage in book. I hope my typing isn't outrageous!I was going to scan the pages, but I need to reinstall my program.Too lazy tonight. Please let me know if this helps, also if there is anything else that I might be able to help you with.I haven't lived there since 1962, but I have lots of relatives there and several elderly ones who new a lot of the old timers.
