Thank you, Maria, for the photos and descriptions. I only recently began receiving your emails, and I now look forward to each new one. You are indulging two of my passions simultaneously: history and Farmington. Please keep up the great work!
Thank you! That means so much to me. I’ll keep at it, never fear.
