I hope I´m not out of line but I wanted to wish you a happy birthday from Iceland!
Is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Donaldson_(bookseller) the same Alexander Donaldson?
Thanks so much for the good wishes, shaolingod. I had a wonderful birthday!Andrew, "my guy" was going to school in Pennsylvania circa 1820 and yours was in 1700s Scotland. So, different folks but perhaps related in some way. Unfortunately, I don't have any more information other than this. Thanks for your interest!
