Howdy and Happy Fourth of July. Just want to let you know that the Dick Grace book came. A nice copy, as promised. Grace was quite a fellow: the only person I ever heard of who crashed planes for a living and died of old age. I was in The Argosy once, years ago, 1997 or so. Hope to get in again one of these days, but NYC is a long way from here. Thanks again for helping me out with this. Best - Bob H.
