RAY WILLIAMS VISITS WOOKEY HOLE

In response to last week's Featured Web Page on the Wookey Hole
Mill, Ray Williams writes: "Last month Diane and celebrated out
20th anniversary.  On our honeymoon we went to England and one of
our impromptu stops was at Wookey Hole, which is a cave.  It was
interesting hearing about a witch that lived there and how people
dying downstream were attributing it to the witch...

Upon departing, Diane and I saw the paper mill.  We decided to stop
in.  We saw paper being made the old fashioned way, we saw how water
marks were done...  It was actually quite fascinating.  I noticed
several Confederate States of America notes hanging on the wall and
told Diane that I had an example in my collection that resembled one
of the notes.  After inquiring, I discovered that this mill supplied
the paper for some of the CSA notes.  It's always nice when you can
find something numismatic on a honeymoon!"
