The library that was to be moved into our C'Town House this summer belonged to this scholar, J.A. Leo Lemay, Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Professor of English, who died in 2008. He is best known for his work with Benjamin Franklin.
The workmen are still building the bookshelves for The House, for this collection. Imagine, living with this! I mean the collection. The bookshelves will be installed the first weekend we're away.
I've been e-mailed an itemized list of what the house has in terms of kitchen, cleaning, bathroom and so on necessities. It's pretty complete.
What we are advised to bring with us are: sheets, blankets, towels, radio, stereo, telephone, hangers, teapot, favorite kitchenware such as scissors, etc. I queried speficially about all these things. There is even a toolbox -- I asked about hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, etc.
I've been exporting my e-ddress book to my various online e-mail venues, in preparation for sending out the (temporary) change of address, and adding Microsoft Live for the new e-mail manager.
