Hello Mary, I found your email address on the following Page:

First I think the Web Site was very well done and of great value. In a recent visit a search landed me on the following page:
I found this entry, W1269 TO MAYOR W.A. HAVEMEYER from E.R. Peaslee

My great great Grandfather was W. A. Havemeyer, his Uncle William F. Havemeyer was actually the three term Mayor of New York. W. A. (William Albert) Havemeyer was never mayor.

Either in transcription, or in the original document, there is an error.

Just thought you would want to know, it looks like a lot of people put a lot of work into this project. It is very well done!
Peace! John Havemeyer
