Re: Laura Brown Goodwin File



Eric - What I have is a photocoy of a typewritten copy of a letter
sent by G.B. Brown. I believe it was typed by Laura Goodwin as it was
sent to me with her other material. The letter says, "About 73 years
ago my brother Victor and I were boys." It was dated Hamilton, March
1st, 1956. He also mentions a brother Cyrus.
