The End of an Era
As mentioned in our "Advisory" [September 2008 issue,] Henry Morgan of Freebooter fame is
retiring. Clearly this marks the end of an era, with our self being
perhaps the last of the Mohicans, i.e. one of the first and original
privacy providers on the Internet.
Old father time never stops and time marches on. Now Henry moves into
a hopefully long and healthy retirement so be it.
Albeit Morgan's long time trusted friend and associate, Colonel Edward
Whitehead (Retd) is taking over the helm at the FB and is certain to
carry on in Morgan's trusted service and tradition, like the late
great Duke Ellington song title: "Things ain' t what they used to be!"
We'll just be missing something here, won't we?
When once asked about Henry Morgan from a long time customer, we
"Henry Morgan? I'll tell you about Henry Morgan! He's nearly the
beginning and end of privacy and hard copy newsletter and internet
providers bar none. Can I be any more emphatic than that?"
Yes Henry was on the ground floor of the internet privacy business
along with ourselves and perhaps one or two others. Now all the originals
save PT Shamrock, are gone.
We could write mountains about the ole captain. However, I believe
that our interview with Henry Morgan, i.e.
http://www.ptshamrock.com/secret/feb_2008.html says it all. You can
download his latest newsletter free at
Our profound thanks go to Henry Morgan for having the extraordinary
opportunity of knowing him these many years, for being a wonderful
human being as well as a truly great and trusted friend. A hearty
thank you dear Henry for being there all these past years and a very
long and happy retirement indeed.
See you next issue
