Hello all,

First, I thank you for the great response I received to my call for help
regarding the 'lost' episode of Chap. 9 in Huck Finn. Lots of people in the
forum were more than kind in rushing me whatever material they had and
thought would be useful for me.

I am now writing the article for the newspaper and am awaiting just two items:

- The New Yorker of 8-14-95, where some theories regarding the episode were

- The January 96 issue of Harper's with an article touching the HF issue.

The first item is supposed to reach me tomorrow, but I have problems

And a last one -
