Hi Larry,

Nothing like saying God is on your side! I think both sides thought this??

What say you??

Dave,

God had his work cut out, didn’t he ? Everybody beseeching his help, and claiming that he was on their side !

Lady Luck was what counted, and in that realm poor Burnside was most fearfully forsaken !
