Scare me to death about my search engine!
I did a number of searches before I realized"
The word "Newspapers" appears in the table of contents for Chapter III,
but the quote below starts with the mention of "newsletters". . . .
But the header "Newspapers" does not appear IN Chapter III, only in
the table of contents. . .and the quote is not the first part of
Chapter III. . .made me wonder if my search engine had totally lost it,
until I started searching for portions of the quotation.
So nice to hear from you!!
