Letter to the Editor:
I appreciate Jon Ringelberg’s attention to detail when he read my article, however he does seem to have a propensity to prejudge before obtaining all the facts. Perhaps if he had taken the time to inquire from me, the fact of the matter, he would have discovered that there was a typographical error on my part, when I typed up the column. In my haste I hit the 8 instead of the 9 on my keyboard. However for the public’s benefit and any others who may have noticed the wrong date, Please don’t take it as a Historical “fact” that the roads were like they were in 1850, actually I intended to type 1950. Thank you Jon Ringelberg for pointing out my error in such a kind manner.
Dr. Ray Augenstein
