      From what I read in the Amsterdam paper on-line, Jerry is correct. 'Twas a soggy mess

        That's a shame because he and I talked about those many years ago when I was
        in the middle of my research. They were not the "old" files, I believe
        those have all been copied, but these were maybe late twenties, thirties and
        later. Nevertheless a valuable loss of history.
