Equipment Editor Leaves

Paul James of Alexandria, Virginia, who volunteered in the spring of 1981 to serve as equipment editor, and who did the column for the April and August issues, has been prevented by illness in the family from continuing in this capacity. His contributions were most welcome.

The record of people who had sent in money for rapid notification of equipment coming on the market or for special announcements to potential buyers has been lost, so anyone who sent in money either to Paul James or to the Abbey Newsletter and did not get their money's worth should contact the Editor for a refund.

Murray Lebwohl's address, given with a hand-drawn map on page 37 in the last issue, was wrong. It should have said 1212 Eye Street, Alexandria, VA 22307.

Chris Clarkson is still at the Bodleian; see the notice on the front page of this issue.
