From: Barry Whitney <barryw -at- therock.mcg.edu> Subject: Eli Whitney, Mulberry Grove, and the Cotton Gin Date: Fri, 23 Oct 1998 17:13:02 -0400 (EDT) Dear Cousins, Based mostly on information prepared some time ago by the Mulberry Grove Foundation, I have put together a web page about the Plantation in Georgia (not too far from Savannah) where Eli Whitney developed the cotton gin <<a href="http://members.xoom.com/bwhitney/EliWhitney/&gt">http://members.xoom.com/bwhitney/EliWhitney/&gt</a>;. I added several links, including one to a page describing the troubles that the Foundation has run into in its drive to restore and develop the plantation as a historic site. Perhaps some of you will be inspired to contact a still-active (?) member of the Foundation Committee, Mr. Wade Waters, Vice Chairman, 308 Pinewood Drive, Pooler, Georgia 31322 (912) 748-7909 to find out the current status of their efforts or to offer some guidance or help. Yours, Barry John Barry Whitney III barryw -at- therock.mcg.edu <<a href="http://members.tripod.com/~bwhitney/&gt">http://members.tripod.com/~bwhitney/&gt</a>; <<a href="http://members.xoom.com/bwhitney/EliWhitney/&g">http://members.xoom.com/bwhitney/EliWhitney/&g</a>
