      Again, thanks for the post.

      I'm sorry, but this post and the whole argument about whether
      Nelson/Buell or the gunboats saved Grant reminds me of a very old
      story.

      A man was working on a very high steep pitched tin roof when he lost
      his grip and started slowly sliding to the edge and his certain
      death.  He has time for a prayer:  "O Lord if you will save me I
      will give everything I own to the church."  No sooner than he
      finishes this short little prayer than his overalls catch on a nail
      head and he is able to regain his grip.  

      And he says "never mind Lord the nail got me"

      Thank you for your indulgence,
      Bill Bruner
