  1. Snell’s story has been republished in a facsimile edition. I can’t remember the publisher details.

    I was quite pleased for old Charlie boy but you’re right, it shouldn’t have overshadowed the news the way it has.

  2. My fav. pastime lately is to do full text searches in DNB for “tiger” “india” “male”. The stories you get.

  3. back away, o temptress one. i have a missing conclusion to my paper presentation, due in 10 scant hours.
