Dave: It occurs to me that my response to this email may have appeareda little curt. I did not intend it to be so. I do appreciate you're contibution, and have every intention ( with your permission) of dropping your name when, and if, I should meet Mr. Hartwig.

Just wanted to say that Scott Hartwig is a great guy. I met him several times while I was studying at Gettysburg college for a semester. His son was a friend of mine in college.
