Bob, the Massachusetts Project affiliation seems to have been removed (I think?) from Benjamin Thompson & Loammi Baldwin, and their Massachusetts Project boxes have thus been demoted to Stickers. Can you re-add Massachusetts Project as a manager (if that's the problem)?

Thanks, Chip.

Hello, Bob,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project, and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

If you wish to remain, please let us know how you have been contributing to the tasks and goals of the project or any of its sub-projects recently, it would be very helpful to the leaders.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things and remove you from the project. You will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you,
