CRANKY YANKEE Cyril Tawney - Illness (82* d) RE: Cyril Tawney 03 Sep 04

Of all the British Maritime Folk song writers I think you are the only one that I know of who writes from genuine experience. I truly love your stuff and I sing them when appropriate.

I've actually worked as hired crew(Bo's'n) with extra duty as chantyman on the hermaphrodite brig Black Pearl, SChooner Bill of Rights, the replica of HMS Rose, (I also did the original rigging and trained her first crew) and the schooner Aurora.
From one sailor to another, get well soon.
I'm in physical distress also, and am recovering from colon cancer. I expect to be completely cured. I'm finished with my radiation and chemotherapy and in about a month they'll see if surgery is indicated.
I'm going to be my old self again, YOU DO TOO.
