I happened to be in Dad's office when the phone rang. Mr. Sillito began the conversation with a huge apology. I had no idea what he was referring to. He made mention of the article in the local newspaper that just came out on this morning. As soon as I got off the phone I made a special trip to town to get the mail.
After reading the article that got Mr. Sillito in such a tizzy, I fully understood why he rushed to man-up asap. Sillito was in panic mode trying to put out a fire created by Mr. Taylor's wordy response to my letters that were published the week previous in the local newspapers.
