I just discovered a thank-you letter filled with kind thoughts dated July 23rd, 2004 which was from " E. James Lane, Jr. Automotive Consultancy , Loudon, Tennessee.
He was reminiscing about Captain and Mrs. Robins whose home I bought and he was delighted to visit and see my slight architectural improvements. Not to mention his delight in revisiting all the significant landmarks in Newport he adored.
A beautifully expressed letter.
Should a family member want this typed letter I certainly will sent it onward.
