At Press Time Historic Chair As Good as New THE story of Jack Huff's trip up Mount LeConte with his dying mother is legendary in the Smokies. Was the improvised improvised chair, in which Mrs. Huff sat, still in existence? Huff said he thought so. Search throughout his Mountain View hotel failed to reveal it. Someone said he thought it was in the Gatlinburg museum. The museum, which was closed for the season, was opened for the Magazine. No chair. After combing the town, Huff located the chair at a home several miles away. Condition: good as the day it was used nearly 25 years ago. Jack Huff and his pack chair remember, In those I recognized, some childhood happening. For instance, when I'd left the gate unlocked and our cow had spoiled Miss Gertie's lovely spring garden . . . Greenbrier was my home for the first two years of my married life, also. "I'm so glad you gave Mr. Charlie and Miss Bill such a wonderful build up, too, for if ever two people deserved praise, they do. They are the finest. "All in all, your story was great and round about-here about-here about-here has been the subject of much comment, all very good."
