     Ric Dragon has sent me a copy of your e-mail concerning a talk at the Ogdensburg Remington Museum on March 20th.  I don't know if he had the time to answer you for he was to go out of town on a business trip but I just wanted you to know if I was closer I would surely be going to hear the
talk. I have "whiled" away some of my winter hours on reading of Remington and Poultney on such trips.  At first I was trying to locate perhaps what
Poultney would have done with his extensive collections of letters, etc. with Remington.  I finally found that he must have donated this to the St.
Lawrence University and it must have been in 1925.  I really can't access any of the info. for they indicate it is for "LIB USE ONLY" located in the
ODY Special Collections, Call # MSS. Coll. No. 008.  Also, Poulteny writes of these trips in "SEVENTY SUMMERS".
     Have you researched St Lawrence University Library on the Bigelow family? They indicate an entry dated 1890!
I do hope that you are able to tape the talk and I know you will enjoy the excursion. I was just rereading the article that Poultney wrote in "The
Quarterly Journal of the New York State Historical Assoc." in 1929 regarding Remington ( some extracts from unpublished letters) very interesting.  I, also just came back from a walk around the ole Homestead - we had a light snow yesterday but the crocus and the tulips are coming up.
