Tim Wolforth, I'll have a reply to you before too long, but I would like
to get one little piece of information from you before I proceed. Would

The last name is spelled Proyect not Proyject or Projyect. It is
Yiddish for the counting-house of a tax-farmer, prevalent in the Minsk
district in the mid 1800's.
