      Sorry about the slow response to this message (one year later) but do you remember
      when your great-grandmother made the entries about Blanding? I'm wondering when
      Don was making plans to do business with William Twigg-Smith.

      Did your grandfather Thurston Twigg-Smith ever have any dealings with Blanding.
