Thanks for the nice story [Letter to the Editor]

An appreciative subject writes

Looking for Cape Codders who love maps as he does

By Dave Allen

How nice!  thanks for the write-up. In a previous life I wanted to be a reporter, so I have a secret admiration for anyone who can translate random thoughts into a concise news story.

One other thought.

A different version of Mr. Allen's story
is on Plymouth Daily News here.
I am hoping that I might find a reader or two who would analyse these old maps and perhaps write up some short narratives on map features , such as "Dr. Bourne was a much loved family doctor who vigorously suppirted the CCC even though it would wipe out the ancestral homestead..."  (I am not even sure that it did - but considering the geography I suspect that the old Bourne Place is a fishy lair now.)

I would then add the narratives to the web site.  They help make old maps more interesting.
