Received the following e-mail from Fletcher Hanks,

Jack Blackmore and I were roommates from Brownsville, Texas where we were both hired the same day. We went to Alaska together and then to CNAC together. He was surprised when I left. I told him I had a dream that he would die in China and it was the only such dream I had. Christy
