Dear Dale

M'Lissa Kesterman told me that the watchmans records from the L&C Wharfboat documents the last river traffic on the 17th of December. J. T. Hatfield moved upstream out of harms way on the 8th of December 1917. This would indicate that COL must have made the move sometime before 17 Dec. The accurate window of the painting is 6-8 December to 17 December. I wonder if the same watchmans records herald COL's arrival for the protection downstream of L& C Wharfboat. H Carrol was the harbor boat for White Collar if my memory is right. Your picture of the Hatfield in the ice off Licking river is a teastament to the brutal conditions of the Ohio in winter.
