Re: Rosslyn, Virginia

I may have the answer to my own question.  I called the library in
Arlington, Va. and spoke to one Judy Knudsen who helpfully faxed me the
enclosed excerpt from "Why Do We Call It?" by the Arlington Historical
Society. I hope it transmits OK as I am new at this scanning business.  I am
afraid the answer is not very exciting.
Best regards,
David Sinclair
