To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:
1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

From: Philip Kutner <fishl at derbay.org>
Subject: Habrina of Hunterdon

Over 90 Mama stories were published in Der Bay and compiled in a 
book,Hrabina of Hunterdon. Hrabina means "countess"in Polish. The book was 
first released at the 13th IAYC conference.

Mama dressed and worked like a peasant woman. She always wore a kerchief 
to cover her hair and skirts made from Purina feedbags. Her hands were 
calloused and red. The cracks in the skin from the cold often opened and 
bled, but she carried herself as if she were royalty.

Each week three of these stories will be sent to online subscribers to
Der Bay. For a free subscription go to www.derbay.org
