General Assembly, the Presbyterian Church’s biennial meeting, is in sederunt over this weekend. The archives have already had our good news as the development of the buildings that house us, with costs, has been approved. This was passed with only one voice in dissent. When asked from the floor what archives has to do with the mission of the church one of our more conservative ministers spoke passionately for the archives’ cause. (At least one reader will know who I mean by Rev. Blobby!) That won over the evangelical partisans. I think I shall go do a little victory dance now.

This time next week we shall have begun our shelf check in preparation for the big move.
