48 and not (quite) out.

It's always very pleasant to receive a letter from a friend and especially so when the content discusses ones hobby.

My thanks to Harold Storey, Chairman of The Cheshire Heraldry Society, for assisting in the identification of (most of) the quarters in the armorial bearings of Booth which are displayed as a monument to Langham and Henry Booth seen in the Dunham (or Booth) Chapel at Bowdon Parish Church. Harold wrote me a very pleasant letter (received today) informing me that he had already done this work some years ago when he completed a report for the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts; he was kind enough to share his research with me.
