William James Baumbach Life Story, this is a very long letter that was started as a book by him (my father) but was never finished. It is still full of important details of his life and some history of Washington D.C. and Arlington VA. This was never finished because my father started it too late in life and was struck with Parkinson's disease causing him to lose his resent memory and only remembering his childhood. To give you an idea. He often forgot who I was and confused me with one of his dead brothers. Enough said on that, I'm sure you get the idea.

Inventions of W. J. Baumbach

Brain trained over many years to perform a given task and work hard Letter.

Letter from (Catharine) the mother of Bernhard August Baumbach This letter is 125 years old (as of 1997.) My father was very impressed with this letter and felt that it contained very good advice that even today can and should be used. He made a note to himself on the letter that reads " with time proven advice, is as good in 1987 as it was 115 years ago." The boy in the letter to whom it was written too was my fathers grandfather. (added 12-2000 letter came from the town Schweina, Germany. June, 30th 1872.
