      Dear Group:

      A "nested" question for you: When, and for what reasons,
      and driven or guided by whom, would you say that the
      use of cavalry in the West began to change from decorative
      to functional?

      Put another way, when, why, and pushed by whom did the
      western cavalry come to be used as a raiding and strike-
      force unit, on its own, rather than as a scattered
      attachment to the infantry?

      Also, was there any significant connection between
      Eastern- and Western-theater uses, and changes
      therein, of cavalry, or did the two broad theaters
      operate more or less independently re: the horsemen?

      Am fascinated by your recent discussions of Western
      issues -- more, please; more!

      Yours....
