The kids get out of school Friday and I get out after next Wednesday. I plan to be out of town the last week of June and the second week of July on research trips. The rest of the summer I will be home compiling my research so John Quarstein can start writing the NC Squadron book in September. I can be reached after 7:30 p.m. most nights at 338-6230.
Welcome aboard, Bob! Have you seen that there is a new book by Lee Oxford out about the capture of the Fanny and the Chicamacomico races? I enjoyed proofing it for him. Also, John Quarstein plans to start writing one on the NC Squadron in September once I finish up doing the research for him. Could I interest you in posting a bio of William Lynch on my Wordpress blog site covering the "mosquito fleet"?
