From: <RayWhit79 -at- aol.com> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Eli Whitney Date: Tue, 19 Oct 1999 13:17:39 EDT Dear Ron, I am not related to Eli Whitney, but the first day I entered highschool, back in 1929, no less, as soon as they learned my name was Whitney, classmates started calling me "Eli" and it stuck all through high school. Occasionally to this date, someone calls me by that name. Thanks for the story about Eli Whitney in his work on the cotton gin. It was very interesting. He certainly did create quite a great contribution to the cotton industry. Best regards. Ray Whitney
