Mr. Weeks, You recently mentioned not having an index to Sherman s memoirs, IIRC, which makes me think that you or others might also not have a digital copy ofMessage 84 of 84 , Mar 3, 2003View SourceMr. Weeks,
You recently mentioned not having an index to Sherman's memoirs,
IIRC, which makes me think that you or others might also not have a
digital copy of that work or of other useful books.
Would it be helpful, and would your website have the extra megabytes
(several MBs per book, roughly), for me to upload into your database
such texts as Sherman's, Grant's, and Sheridan's memoirs and Van
Horne's biography of Thomas? If so, once I return home, I would be
glad to do so.
I could put these in Word and/or .TXT formats.
