That letter would be interesting to a lot of people.  I'm sure I could get it 
published in the AWA Journal if you would like, Ron.

  I hadn't heard the "FB from Samuel F. B. Morse" theory,
  but maybe...

  FYI, Samuel F. B. Morse III, W6FZZ,
  SFBM's grandson (not great- or great-great-grandson)
  was a FB Morse code champion at both the American Morse
  (actually Vail) and International codes
  at about 75 wpm.
  I see on QRZ.com that his license was renewed
  in June 1996 and expired June 2006.
  There was some sort of update to the QRZ page
  in March 2006.  It shows an email address.
  But he must be a SK by now.

  _Somewhere_safe_ I have a handwritten letter
  by SFBM III giving some tips on achieving speed
  at Morse Code.  It was sent to a mutual friend
  who gave it to me.  Just gotta remember
  where "safe" is.

  Cheers, 73,

  Ron McC.
