Hello to everyone.

I guess it is time to admit that I will be retiring from the Mark Twain
Library, at the end of June this year. I have had a truly wonderful time
here, and made many, many new friends - including many on the Mark Twain
Forum. But the time has come for me to leave the world of librarianship
after a very long career working in many different libraries.

I am not leaving Redding, and will continue to be involved in Mark Twain
projects ay the library, so expect me to turn up at various conferences and


My sincere thanks to you all for your friendship and help these past ten
