to speak to the SCV group.

SCV members purchased a large number of inscribed books, and it was after eight o'clock before I departed Carthage for a 240-mile drive to Round Rock, where the Central Texas History Association was scheduled to conduct its 2018 Annual Conference at the Conference Center at the Wingate by Wyndham. I had been invited by Dr. Kenneth Howell, Executive Director of the CTHA, to be the Friday luncheon speaker. I was given a book table in the Vendors Room, and I was joined late on Friday morning by my sister, Judy O'Neal Smith from Lampasas. Judy, an active DRT and museum board member, already knew several of the historians at the CTHA meeting. She sat with me at the head table, and distributed handouts when I began speaking about John Chisum - for the second time in 24 hours.
