I am attaching the raw density measurements (max. latewood den.) for the Sob River site as we extracted them from Fritz data bank. The format is Tucson like (index) except for a different header on each sample series. For your purposes the start and end date of each series are shown as the 2 I4 fields in columns 5-12 of these identifier lines. I hope this is all you need. You may also refer to Figure 2a in our paper in the NATO ASI Volume edited by Phil. The article on Low Frequency Signal problems that you are a co author on. This Figure shows the number of density samples through time in this chronology - very low before 1200 and between 1400 and 1600!!

I am sorry to hear of your tick infection. This is no laughing matter and you should ensure that you are well treated and rested. As of yet I have no problems other than worrying about how we will organise future proposals to the EU. Thankyou again for your hospitality and the warm reception from your excellent group. I sincerely hope we will be able to continue our collaboration for many years to come. I hope too that Eugene also feels committed to this working relationship. Perhaps he was tired but I got the impression his priorities were not so much concerned with our work.

I await detailed description of the full network - locations and correspondence with the density network positions and names - that I believe Valerie will work on. Perhaps the outline and draft of something from Rashit would also be forthcoming soon.

Meanwhile I send my best wishes to you and I await news of your continued health
