Various Chores

Still unable to get started on Chapter 4, because I have to finish my paper — really a condensation of Chapters 2 and 3 — for the Louisiana Historical Association, and then review American Uprising, the rather problematic book about the 1811 German Coast slave uprising. I expect to be done both of these things by the end of next week, and to have made some necessary notes in the meantime, so on Monday the 21st I should be ready to start on Chapter 4. Hopefully this will mean I can finish all or most of it before I head down to New Orleans on 3/13 for ten days of research and visits.
