Hi Don,

I acquired some old books and belongings of Miss Hume from an estate sale. Included is a book from the Field Museum of natural History in Chicago. There are also hand written notes included (possibly written by her) attempting to decipher the mayan chronology. They are fairly complex and I am attempting to discover what involvement she had with this. Anyway, it's interesting. The estate was from a gentleman named Edward Libby, originally from El Paso and later N.H. This may have been his wife or the books may have come from his second wife. I will have to contact these people again. i do know that Mr. Libby collected toy soldiers. if you have any information please inform me. I will do the same.
if these are notes used to decipher the mayan code/chronology then they may have some historical significance. Thank you and kind regards,
David
we can always exchange contact numbers
