I want to take this time to thank the members of B.R.A.S. (Bourbon Research Advancement Society) for their generous "Grant" for my research trip to Nashville. It will cover the gas expenses for the trip and I am deeply grateful. I know this group wishes to remain Anonymus (Heronimous Anonymus or HA to be exact) but I do feel that their generous act deserves recognition. Unfortunately because of work responsibilities I will not be able to make the trip until February but I will save the "Grant" until then. As a matter of fact I will proudly show it to my friend at the Archives in Nashville and let him know about your kind act. I don't know who all contributed to this "Grant" but I want to thank you all and let you know that I will post some of the information I find on this site when I get back.
I was a little hurt I was not asked to join this fine group. Such "Grants" should be made available to other writers who want to advance the world's knowledge of bourbon. I would gladly donate to your treasury for such a "Grant".
