  1. When I was in the 8th grade in Mineral Springs School #2, my teacher, Mrs. Brooks, asked me to write an essay on the Governor’s Mansion at Fort Tryon. As we had no school library, it was necessary for me to go to the Carnegie Library in town. I don’t know why she singled me out to write such a paper, except perhaps she was prescient, knowing I would be doing a great deal of research in the future, pursuing several academic degrees. On a recent cruise, I was discussing with someone about the convenience of research now on the internet. I was delighted last year when I wanted the lyrics of A LITTLE ROSEWOOD CASKET, to have the total text appear. I explained to this new friend that the current research misses the excitement of the hunt when I had to catch a ride to Winston, visit the magnificent (at least in my rural mind Carnegie Library and find the appropriate papers and volumes to begin my research before the actual writing. Perhaps I should write an essay “The Thrill of the Hunt.”
