Re: [BKARTS] More recent adhesive research

Since Peter mentioned my name I don't mind saying that I support
what he is doing and encourage him on.

He was kind enough to send a sample to me and this afternoon I sent
a few writing tablets (along with some other odds and ends of school
material) to a cousin of mine who is a Peace Corps volunteer in Tanzania,
East Africa.

The writing tablets were glued together with Peter's adhesive.

Thanks, Peter.
