Mt. Airy, Maryland
Thanks for inviting me to the May 2002 Merton Society meeting after the Cottage Club dinner at the University Club of New York. I had a great time, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to participate in a modest way in the Society's activities. I have committed "Eskimo Nell" to memory, and it now has an honored part in the bedtime ritual for my two sons.
Enclosed is a recent article from the Independent Rowing News about the Princeton 1973 Lightweight Crew that won the Henley Regatta under the captainship of Sir William the Unconquered. I believe the Princeton rower in the article (the father) is Auty Hayne '75.
I look forward to the next Merton Society meeting.
With warmest regards,
