Captain Mike,

I do believe that you are the new Mark Twain. I've admired your work on the Delta Queen for many years but I certainly didn't know that you had the talent of a brilliant writer. Your logs MUST BE PUBLISHED and they will be.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to be on the Delta Queen's Inaugural cruises. This is because I have a group of steamboaters who were to join me on a TransCanada coast to coast train trip in Canada last year on September 11th. Who would have known the tragedy that was to happen on that date. I had chosen that date 2 years prior. Late last year I found the train space I needed and rescheduled the group to take the journey on August 20th. At that time, I didn't know that the DQ would be coming out on August 26th.

Believe me Mike, I'll be there in spirit and missing all of you. You have developed a FAN CLUB and many of your devotees will be on the DQ anxiously waiting for a few moments to chat with you.

Thank you for the emotion that you relate in all of your messages. I'm looking forward to the tape and I'll be anxious to hear when the book signing is.

You are loved.
God Bless Our Steamboats, God Bless America and
God Bless You.
