Where's my promised Christmas present, Santa Pierre? Are you stuck in a chimney? I'm not happy!

Anyone really surprised at the lack of anything promised by Pe-error.

I've just realized that Pierre has actually given us a Christmas present, albeit a very subtle one: he's decided not to post anymore! Thanks, Pierre, for such a surprising gift, I'm very appreciative!

That's what I was hoping he'd give us.

But somehow I doubt it.

In December 1865 General William T. Sherman sent a historic telegram to President Lincoln, presenting him with the city of Savannah, Georgia and much in the way of Confederate Army military supplies as a "Christmas Present" at the successful conclusion of his famous (or infamous) "March to the Sea" from Atlanta that began in September just preceding this. Christmas gifts back then were more substantial and real. Note that Sherman did not precede this message with a series of vapid pseudo-military statements about how he was secretly arranging the information at his disposal to figure out the correct solution about how to make "Georgia howl". He just did it - and it was done!

Pierre is a hopeless fantasist, who I have indulged, partly for my own amusement, for far too long.

To be fair, Jeff, I wasn't expecting an entire city from Pierre but hey a single document would have been nice.

We didn't even get that. Just impenetrable waffle.

David, what you have got is an historical conclusion established on original sources from archives in Britain.

If you do not like that, put it away somewhere.

But for those who would like to discuss it, they are most welcome.

Regards, Pierre

"an historical conclusion" lol!
