FRENCH SOCIETY MEETING AT NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL

Richard Margolis writes: "Every year since the founding of
the New York International Numismatic Convention in 1972
(2001 excepted) the Societe americaine pour l'Etude de la
Numismatique francaise has held its annual meeting at the
Convention. Each year we have had a prominent speaker as
the centerpiece of our meeting, and this year's speaker
and topic should be of special interest.

"John Kraljevich, Jr. will speak on 'Hunting for Eagles:
Pierre L'Enfant and the Society of the Cincinnati'. The
recent sale at Sotheby's (for over five million dollars)
of George Washington's own, custom-made Order of the
Cincinnati, which his descendants presented to the Marquis
de Lafayette on the occasion of the latter's triumphal
return to the United States in 1834, has focused a great
deal of publicity on this famous Order and the Society
which spawned it.

"John Kraljevich, Jr. one of the most prominent individuals
in early American numismatics, known equally for his erudition
and for the enthusiasm with which he treats any subject he
turns his attention to, should be familiar to most recipients
of The E-Sylum. His illustrated talk at the upcoming SAENF
meeting promises to  be unusually timely and interesting.

"The 36th Annual New York International Numismatic Convention
will take place at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Park Avenue
between 52nd and 53rd Streets in New York City, from January
9 to 13, 2008. The SAENF meeting is scheduled for Saturday,
January 12, at 2:00pm, in the Sutton Suite, on the 18th floor.
(Although there is a ten dollar admission charge to the bourse
rooms at the Convention, I believe that there should be no
charge if you want to only attend John's talk)."
