Dear Percy-L,

Would anyone care to respond to the below query by Ms. Vrcek of Rice
University regarding identifying houses found in The Moviegoer?

Please respond to her directly at <mev1 AT> and copy to Percy-L if you
think it would be of interest to the larger group.

Marcus, any thoughts?

Best regards,
Henry Mills
