that, along with a multitude of documents and such were in a box. i am gonna set up another journal to deal with them, maybe even one by one, because they are so interesting.
i would like to scan most of the documents, when available, or not too delicate to do so. my annoying brother put one of the boxes with this stuff in the back of my pickup, where it sat for several months. some of the papers were damaged by rain or dampness. what a bastard.
so, anyhow, i have to come up with a name for that journal.
