  1. Ah, John, if only I could walk! Maybe some day I’ll come in my wheelchair – first having come across the continent on plane or train – first class! Good luck with your tours. What fabulous excursions must be available in New York City! Dreamer Pete I attach a funny little piece I wrote today. Happy days, John.

  2. John, your reserach and expertise are inspiring. What a brilliant tour. You brought Oscar’s entire universe to life for us, and even managed to explain part of the fascination around sunflowers in 19th Century Manhattan. We covered so much ground in the blink of an eye.
