A timely reminder, no?--that it is often difficult--to be heard--and to 
hear--in this electronic medium.

Nice return to Douglas, David. 

And very sharp memory about that /boy/, William--old boy.  Well played.  
We really do rely on you for such matters. . . .

Douglas was ever a /fond/ fellow, and I think the photo portrait of the 
ancient Douglas contemplating the bust of the young Douglas ("10 & 80") 
a very poetic sort of thing.  See Fitzgibbon's /Pictorial Record./ . .
