Thank you very much. I believe E.Roy has a copy, should you be seeing him.

C. S. Harrison's birthday is on the 24nd of this month. An appropriate menu 
of his favorites would include roast beef, asparagus in cream, and fresh 
strawberries. No booze; he was a Temperance man, in fact, in 1886 he ran for 
Congress from Nebraska on the Prohibition ticket. In this, as in many other things, 
he was a man both of his time, and ahead of it.
