Hi James,

Thanks for digging out this info.  I recently acquired the two Brunswicks in
beautiful condition.  The fourth side is entitled "Christopher Columbus".

They're all of a yiddeshe slant, which I did not know when I bid on them.  I
was just curious about their hopefully topical content.  The Yiddeshe stuff
was a surprise bonus.

The citation in the the Brunswick files is yet again tantalizing proof that
even official logs have errors / discrepancies and that (in this case) the
proof's in the shellac!

Best,
Shiffy
