Thanks again Jenn ...

It was sad ... I read that Margaret Fuller inspired Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter ...

These are cool stories for sure ..

Cheers

Re: [solo] Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock-mas

Hello Kevin Thank you once again for your help and encouragement in this project. Generally, I like to post one chapter at a time pending PL review, but I hope you will indulge me here as I have posted the final chapters now – hoping they are sound. Of course … take your time.

Re: [solo] Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock-mas

Thanks for the PL on Chapter 9 and note on Chapter 8 ... I believe that it was the correct file and that the naming was the only error... which I think is now corrected.

Thanks again .. Home stretch .. cheers DBD

Re: [solo] Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock-mas

Hey Kevin Thanks again ... I think we're making great progress. Really appreciate your help and will try to keep up my end.
