Good **** Jerry. Some of my favorite sentences below.

I did not know the Mechanics Institute was such an institution -- going back over 100 years. A hoary institution, that you would do well to think about as you motor quickly up interstate I-880. Not to be confused with the quick sort of tactics favored by sometime chess player C.A.R. Hoare.

"The first mention I found of Redding in the chess world is from 1881, when he is one of two players on a Mercantile Library team playing a match against a larger team from the Mechanics Institute. "

"Rumor has it, a well-known master named George Hatfield Gossip visited San Francisco in 1888"

"The fish commission was usually a quiet legislative backwater, but Redding had grand [CANAL?--RL] ideas."
