Essay Question: Any comments or Feedback. Name is optional.

1. Hmmm, I have guessed most of these.... but we'll see how I go! Anita
2. The letter is a good read each month and I wish my kids read it as well. Perhaps someday they will when their past is of more interest to them. At first I often found it difficult to follow but over time, I am beginning to see some links and am able to recall some of the relationships. Big thanks to Don and Ray.

Keep studying. There will another quiz in January.
