Sue, if Elmer Bolliard bought the table from the Watchung Furniture House in South Plainfield NJ, around 1940, I suppose it could have been sitting around for a couple of years at that location or even the Mersman Factory in Celina, Ohio. But 8 years after the kidnapping? According to the advocates of the table brace, the hole spacing is the piece de resistance, perhaps having been some kind of template for their design? So how does the brace then figure into a relationship with the hole spacing of the ransom notes of 1932?

Do you know how the Mersman table would have been shipped from Celina, Ohio factory to the Watchung Furniture House? Based on whether it was shipped fully assembled or unassembled, this of course could be very revealing as to where the writing on the table brace actually took place.

          Thanks, Joe! Too bad, Joe, that no one asked the people at Mersman Tables in Celina, Ohio to date the table! In 1980, all anyone had to do was send a picture of the table brace and pedestal, and the... more
