OUR READERS WRITE – August 2007

To The Editors:

The question “Who would remember 1816 in 1907?” is asked on “The Way We Were” page, June 2007.  People would indeed be familiar with 1816  – “Eighteen hundred and froze to death”, “The year without a summer.”  A far-distant volcano exploded, its debris darkening the atmosphere, bringing frost and snow every month of that year.
