Letters to the Editor:
This card should have a Gclansk postmark. My wife and I are on our way back from a week in fiemel. We were to have had a Danzig City tour and a supper, but the boat will not arrive until 11 PM...great disappointment. So we will only pick up pass - engers and continue to Germany.

Know how you feel, Gene. And they didn’t cancel the cord with a Gdonsk postmark. If any of our members hove the opportunity, Gdonsk is a very inexpensive city to visit. The real cost is in getting there. The exchange rote is now 9500 Zlotys = $1.

Answer to the Neefus inquiry:

I am sending you a copy of a Danzig-Neufahrwasser b cancel that clearly shows the distinctive characteristics of the cancel from John Neefus that you illustrated in D.R. 65. I don’t think that any others exhibit the letter on the dateline. Also included are a similar copy of Danzig-Neufahrwasser a and also a Danzig—Neufahrw asser * cancel. IEd.: Also shown - Pg. 16 of Arge’s cancels, Part I.]

Also, on Page 3, you included an illustration of one of the overprinted values on the 100 Mk value (Nos. 183, 186—188) and identified it as 181 — Feld 10.

You’re right, Burt, and you hove won the grand prize for identifying the octagonal center mixed in with all of the other ovals. Below are your cancels:
