Hello Charles -
I am so sorry about this...I appreciate all of your efforts, which  
were considerable I know and I do feel badly...please forgive all of  
our hectic and confused lives...

Maybe we could hold a conference on the internet...I know there are  
some groups that do that, and it does not require any hotel down  

Gallaudet is an important University in the history of the I  
can really understand why you wanted to have the conference there, and  
maybe it can happen someday...

Thank you for your wonderful work on the Deaf history article about de  
L'Eppe for the ASL Encyclopedia...I hope to post the video clips for  
that document on the web this weekend and then we can enjoy sharing it  
with the List next week...

Val ;-)
