I bought a book and had Amazon send it to you. You did receive it. It is a very thin hardback book. The author is Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry. Look in your reference section. This book is called a classic by Amazon. The part in the book is in the appendix or later part of the book. It tells how the US acquired Florida from the current owner the country of Spain for free. Mr. Curry was sent by the US government to Spain and his book is very interesting, but the subject for you museum historians is how the US acquired the state of Florida without paying anything and that is in the little extra book in back of the regular book. The story has been written in a US magazine years ago, but I don't know which one.
I ordered a copy of the book for myself and sent it to my son in Atlanta before Christmas, so I can't look it up myself today. Diplomacy and patience was all it took for Spain to give up Florida.

I can't remember the name of one of my neighbors in Plantation Point who is real smart and a good researcher. His wife is Tema. We were next door neighbors to Cotton and Charles Sweat.
