First, thank you VERY MUCH, Steve, for those gems. I din't know that the
Huguenot Society was founded by Gen. W.G. de Saussure. I am glad that my
son Julien de Saussure spend his summer holidays doing translation of
French documents for them. We will meet him on Tueday in Paris airport
and he sure will tell us a lot about his vision of SC past and present.

Second, I am very glad to learn that our emigre, Henri de SAUSSURE, went
to Purysburg in 1730. Where can I learn more on this settlement?
