Offer: Winners of the West

Mr. McRae:
A few days back I told Harold Sayre that I had revisited the issues of Winners of the West--the monthly publkication of the National Indian Wars Verterans from late l923 thru late l944. Harold asked if I would send him a list of the black regulars I found in this paper.
Went Harold a step better and made him copies of all the black regular references I found--nearly 50 pages (about a third with multiple clippings). Harold's copies will go off via snail mail today.

This task got me thinking. Interlibrtary Loan is a wonderful thing-and most "loans" are free--but university libraries tend to charge to borrow their material. Film of Winners came from Wisconsin State Historical Society at a charge to me of $l5. A bargin and I was happy to pay.
I get my copy work done at the local Office Depot at 5 cents per page. So the copy work from Winners for Harold set me back all of about $2.50 and postage out to him at Ft Davis might bring the total up to around $5(first class postage).

So here's my offer. If anyone would like a set of the Winners clippings re black regulars in the post-Civil War army, send me five bucks and a mailing address. I'm honest, and I'll get the stuff off to you as quickly as possible. What a deal!!!!!! A $l5 Interlibrary Loan fee or fork out five bucks. This, I think, is what is called a research no brainer.

Will be happy to help.
