Don and I are very excited about launching our website and the forthcoming publication of our book, Secret Lives ... This has been a true labor of love, especially for Don, without whose relentless efforts this book would not have been possible. I may have started this project, but it was Don who turned it into something much more than an analysis of Gay's Record. His exploration of the lives of Gay and Napoleon gave it a much richer context and enabled us to tell a story about what it was like to be an agent of the Underground Railroad. We hope you will share your thoughts about our efforts, and update us with any new information or possible links that would add to this story and an understanding of the operation of the Underground Railroad in the northeast.
