      Thanks, Mary
      for the info you passed on to Dave regarding the 'received' bar. I've had
      my computer since last August and was not aware of that possibility.

      I read the DB letter you posted. It's great! I have in my possession a
      book of poems that was published in 1931. The poet was a 'friend of a
      friend' of my mother's named William Sydney Neilan. I only bring this up
      here because he seemed to share Don's opinion of the critics. The last
      half of the last poem in his book reads like this:

      Not for mansion, not for gold,
      Not for transient touch of fame
      Have I written lines so bold
      My inner urgings were to blame

      Caustic critic waste no time
      Picking flaws and finding fault
      In my crude constructed rhyme
      Which lacks polish, but has salt.
      With some verse of minor note
      Rhymes of mine, perhaps may claim
      Place beside some verse remote,
      This has been my only aim.
