Actually, you did Mark, when you made your silly 
remark about only some "anonymous" LUG member 
having seen my prints, because I made a reference 
some time back to the fact that a member of the 
list and I had traded prints - he sent me a film 
scan, and an RC print he had had made from the 
print, and I produced three different black and 
white prints from his scan, But if you want names 
of numerous LUG members who have seen my quadtone 
prints, just let me know - I'll be happy to send 
them to you, starting with Ted Grant.
