Hi, Keith:
Many thanks for your interesting report on the steamboat weekend at Louisville. Sorry I missed it but duty called here at home Saturday/Sunday. Shipyard Sam sent news also. These preliminary program announcements you and others post--with the following report--are important on the web. Will be packing for the long 'hegira' to Michigan for the summer on June 8th and...well...600 miles northwest is no small distance. The Howard Museum is a true one-of-a-kind gem in the United States and the work all of you have done over the years is incredible. I'm sure Loretta Howard is looking down bursting with pride at all the work accompished.
