Alan, Jonathan and I also send our birthday greetings to you on this special day. Your kindness and generous assistance in helping us film our NATCHEZ video last month was very much appreciated. We are in the midst of editing all that footage and hope to have the program finished by the end of this month. It will be 40 years ago next week that we first met when you gave my parents and this teenager the cook's tour of the BELLE, after we had lunch at Hasenour's. Now a second generation of die familie Tschiggfrie has had the special treat and good fortune of meeting you and learning about the Western Rivers steamboat from one who knows that creature best. And incidentally, when we wer in New Orleans two weeks ago, the NATCHEZ looked as beautiful as ever!
