Processing slowly through a mountain of correspondence, I read this letter (copy) and got a BIG LAUGH. Trivia letter. Indeed, “snail mail” is almost obsolete!! I do not remember the purchase of a scanner in 1998. I surmise it did not meet my needs (or it would have left an impression?). However, the 2017 purchase of a scanner has proved very valuable. The PaperPort software is very satisfactory. ~~ A big laugh relieves some of the stress of this almost overwhelming project.
