    I'm glad you wrote it again, Jim, as I don't remember reading it
    before.  In 
    fact, I don't remember hearing it on a recording,  either.  Your remarks
    had 
    me scurrying for my recordings of DWS.   
    
    
    	Chris, listen to track 9 on Bobby Brown's "Grandfather Mountain"
    CD, if you have it. It's a very good CD.  I always remember DWS this
    way.
