Congratulations on the end of eleven successful years. The E-Sylum is one of my favorite "reads" each week and is certainly among the most entertaining and informative. I'm glad you're still enjoying the work and I hope you never quit.

In reading over last week's issue and noting your comment that it was 11 years ago that E-Sylum publication began, I took a look back in my E-Sylum e-mail folder and simply wanted to say that I have been in from the start. I don't recall the events that caused me to be signed up as a charter member, but I have always been a happy participant. Those first few issues were pretty slim and I notice that volume 1 ended with issue
#12 at the end of December 1998.

It is amazing that the E-Sylum has been going for 11 years…… well done!
I am just back from the International Numismatic Congress in Glasgow - I had lots of books for sale there – and the long drive up there with some 250 books paid off - the majority sold!!!
It was great to see so many old and new friends there. Your note about the 11th year for The E-Sylum reminded me that it was precisely 40 years (yes!) on September 4th (1969) since I started work in Spink's Book Department when Howard Linecar was the Manager. In Glasgow I met up with very many old friends, some of whom were interested in coins well before I came onto the scene - so I have known many of them for 40 years.
All best to you and I hope The E-Sylum continues for many years to come.
