      I ordered Bridge's book and will plan to check it for Hill's remarks.

      Thank you,

      Stuart's leaving him to twist in the wind at So. Mtn. (Carman,
      interestingly enough, largely gives Stuart a pass on the whole

      Roswell Ripley at So. Mtn. are priceless.)

      made good use of the Lib of Va collection, and his citations should
