  MissScarlett: Couldn't you forward them to <Jean Defuse>?
Nov-02-21  Sally Simpson: Will do - What is the email address.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Don't know. See User: Jean Defuse
Nov-02-21  Sally Simpson: I did after your first post, there is no email address. should forward them on they will have your email.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: I wouldn't count on it.
Nov-02-21  Sally Simpson: Here is the intro, I think you are more interested in that than the games. After the Morphy coat of arms comes the games.

I'm using an old RHP blog as image hosting, (I'm bound to get into trouble) I'll leave it there for a few days. let me know when you have it.

  MissScarlett: But the games, too.
Nov-02-21  Sally Simpson: OK give 5 minutes - I'll have to take them down after one hour. They are huge memory gobblers, I'll crash the net.
Nov-02-21  Sally Simpson: here grab them quick. & pages of Morphy games in Algebraic.

Nov-02-21  Z truth 000000001: In for an inch, in for a mile...

Can we please have a peek at the write-up as to the how these games were published? (I.e. maybe on p353?)

I'd sure appreciate it.

  keypusher: <Sally> I'm sure <MissScarlett> meant to thank you, but it slipped her busy mind. Thanks!
Nov-03-21  Sally Simpson: the intro is posted above, here it is again.

Nov-03-21  Sally Simpson: 20 minutes and then they all come off - if the RHP boss finds out I be in trouble (again).

Hi K.P.

It's no problem, actually I enjoyed being in trouble - the only thing that ever varies is the depth.

  MissScarlett: These are 8 months late. I will thank <Miss Sally> next July. Be sure to remind me.

  Phony Benoni: Thought this looked familiar. It was Monday's GOTD, but seems to have been kibitzed more often on Tuesday!
Nov-03-21  Z truth 000000001: <Sally> much obliged, and many thanks again.

  MissScarlett: The games from the September 1979 BCM are here: Morphy vs Maurian, 1866 (kibitz #9)
Nov-03-21  Sally Simpson: It was Covid. Nicky Sturgeon closed Scotland down.

Glad to have helped. I am now removing them, please let me know if chessgames forwarded on the email, that may be a way to go if you need more assistance in the future.

This site is sorely testing my patience.

Nov-03-21  Brenin: <Phony Benoni>, <MissScarlett>: I assume all this recycling is CG's response to COP26.
Nov-03-21  AlicesKnight: I keep thinking it's Tuesday .... now I know why.
Nov-03-21  AlicesKnight: I have this strange feeling of deja-vu ...
Nov-03-21  RookFile: Let's keep it a green planet. Remember to recycle.
