DELIGHTED TO LEARN OF ERROR

Dick Johnson writes: "A tip of my hat and a "thank you"
to Elizabeth Rosenberry who corrected a statement I
had repeated in E-Sylum. I had stated that the founder
of Bois Durci, Charles LePage, had also developed
LePage Glue. Madame Rosenberry attributes the glue
to a Canadian LePage, the French LePage had, indeed,
developed Bois Durci.

I forget where I obtained my incorrect fact Ė it was several
years ago. [At my age, I can attribute it to long term versus
short term memory. Elsewhere in this issue is the name
Ramona Javitz which popped into my mind, despite that
fact it has been over 35 years since I spoke her name. Now
donít ask me what I had for lunch today. Wait! It was
potato soup and Oreo Desert.]

I do remember looking in my 2-volume Larousse Universal
Encyclopedia for Bois Durci. Now I remember. I found the
incorrect fact on the Internet. Darn! I should have known
better. My slightly bruised ego takes a back seat to knowing
I now posses a corrected fact in my mental databank. Thanks
again, Ma'am"
