On a more somber note, we learned this week of the passing of Alex Cox, chairman of Batsford, Ltd., (owner of B.A . Seaby, Ltd.). Mr. Cox reportedly died in London of a heart attack.
On a personal note, the new Sayles home that has occupied so many evenings, weekends, holidays, and delayed vacations, in its construction, is now completed and I can get back to answering all of the kind letters that have been flowing in. In the meantime, thanks ever so much to all of you who have sent me information about my own collecting specialty, the clasped hands motif. I hope someday to publish my research and you will all have played an important role in that effort.
Thanks again for helping to make The Celator a success. Above all.. let us hear your point of view!
