You've mentioned this before and for some reason it never clicked. I
am quite interested in documenting any information I can on early
twentieth-century references to ink spread. Where did you find WAD's
measurement? I assumned Justin's rundown was quite on the mark too but
that never clicked either!!! What's wrong with that old clicker?

This is great news. Dwiggins, Justin, and
now that guy are all in the same ballpark.
