March 8, I sent for Ella Markell's death cert. Ella's history is part of my research into the Markell/Mahler/Lebowitz family mysteries--two brothers marrying two sisters.
On April 4, Pennsylvania cashed my check. And I waited.
On May 13, Pennsylvania wrote me the above letter, asking for my patience and saying the record would be on its way in four more weeks. I waited. And I waited.
Does Pennsylvania usually take this long to process a simple document request?
I'm still w a i t i n g. I'm going to write them again today. The LONG wait leaves me, well, nearly wordless.
