For any who might not know the story, I would invite you to check out my site which is preparing for the 50th Anniversary of the McDonald County secession attempt of 1961, and the accompanying McDonald Territory Private Dispatch. Quite a few still remember it, a lot of us were too young.
It is a fascinating sidebar to McDonald County history and postal history thereof.

I am still seeking material from that event as part of my research and would invite contact if you have any mail or other ephemera. Thanks.
