Ladies and Gentleman,

This has been an eventful evening!

Today, I took the step of allowing Robert Pearlman to conduct a comprehensive review of the internal records of Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc., relating to the acquisition of the Ernest Haecker Collection of 8x10 White Spacesuit Portraits.

Robert was brought in as an independent "auditor", authorized to examine the relivant documents under a non-disclosure agreement pertaining to our acquisition of that hoard in 1997.

Robert will shortly issue a report of his findings in this matter.

I have also learned this evening that Neil Armstrong has issued a statement that confirms he does NOT affix his signature over the American Flag.

I would hereby like to officially congratulate Steve Zarelli, and his team that included Russ Still, Ken Havekotte, Donnis Willis, Bob McLeod, and others on a fine piece of deductive reasoning.

Guys, you were right and I was wrong!

I would further like to again apologize to any and all for this sitution.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, I again offer to recall all Neil Armstrong White Spacesuit 8x10 Portraits, from those folks who purchased them from Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc. during 1998 and early 1999, that may still be outstanding.

Please feel free to call me, toll-free, at (888) 644-7322, or contact me via e-mail at, to arrange for a swift and cheerful refund.

I further extend an olive branch to any and all parties who feel that they have been slighted in any way by Peachstate.

It was certainly never my intention, and I pledge to bury the hatchet if you will.

I would finally like issue a heartfelt thanks to Robert Pearlman for his assistance to Peachstate in this matter.

Finally, I pledge to make Peachstate's special resources more accessible to the CollectSpace family from this point forward.

Most Respectfully,

David Frohman, President
Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc.

I guess that since this is the "Concluding Chapter", you are saying that the discussion is over? All I can say is that it has been a complete waste of my time as none of the points I have raised have been addressed. At least I don't have to bury the hatchet because I never brought one out in the first place. All I have looked for is answers and to this point all I have seen is unanswered accusations from one side and back patting and spin from the other.

John, it looks as if we will not get beyond your starting point.

Mr. Frohman, yesterday you knew from personal experience that exceptions to the "flag test" exist. Today it is case closed and congratulations to Zarelli et al. This sure seems to happen around this jinx of a hoard often enough. Anyway, very gracious of you! You are a true gentleman.

Robert, I do hope you give a report that is just the facts. If I see spin applied to this issue one more time, I think I'll join our friends on the elist and take up cross stitch!

Chet, give it up. You are wasting your time.

Al, Steve, Bob, Russ, ... I think we need to get together for that BBQ. Kumbayah!

To all the rest of you. Observe and learn. This is a great laboratory experience in himan behavior. I think there are lessons to be learned.

Be observant!

I have been following this with a great deal of interest and I am convinced that Mr Frohman is a lovely chap and the sun doesn't rise until he gets out of bed in the morning but absolutely nothing has been answered with these posts.

His supplier is dead which is very convienent and other than a direct invitation to Joe Davis to contact him nothing resolved. Does Mr Frohman believe that with some gloss we will stop asking difficult questions of him and the heading of this thread ".... now the concluding chapter", is at best arrogant. He has graced us with his presence in a total waste of time and bandwidth.

I would like to ask you, Mr Frohman about your involvement with Mr Koschal. If I am not mistaken he has been expelled from the UACC for dishonesty within the autogaph industry and if this is true why are you so proud to be associated with him in your autograph study?

I would also like to ask why you haven't made any denial of wrongdoing in the posts regard the piece from Jimmy Brown?

Please give some answers.

Dennis Talbot
