*REFLECTOR by mail or packet boat?*
Hi, Steamboating colleagues:
Glad the stellar March, 2014 REFLECTOR is at last filtering in at various destinations across the U.S. and even in Europe. I, too, have noticed the variance in mailing by 'Richardson Printing Co.' in Marietta and when it arrives hither and yon. Funny, it can vary for sure with some not receiving a copy until many weeks later. I've even had mine be totally lost and never received--several times. 'Richardson' mails all at one time, but they find their way up to the regional U.S. Postal depot in Columbus, Ohio. After that it's a good question. Again, several big bundles are dropped on the QUEEN CITY, HUDSON or VIRGINIA for Cincinnati and all points after that.

A number of years back there seemed an unusually large number who didn't receive it that month. I got on the stick, phoned up to Columbus talking to a nice 'PR' person handling "customer affairs." Within 24 hours I got an answer that, "They were found in a back storage area ready for the trucks. So very sorry." Well, what do I know?
