Dear Jonathan,
Thanks for your persistence.  This may work yet.  Here's the
complicated story from my side.  I use a small rural bank which does
not directly accept wire transfers from foreign banks.  But it claims
that it can do so indirectly if you wire the money to my bank's own
account in a larger NY bank.  In fact, it botched a transfer a couple
years ago and I've been reluctant to try it again.  But the people
there assure me that the process should work smoothly this time.  Here
are the details.
My local bank = Bar Harbor Banking & Trust (83 Main Street, Bar
Harbor, Maine 04609  USA)
Send the wire transfer to = Bank of America NA, NY, NY
Bank of America's ABA number = 026009593
My local bank's account number at Bank of America = 0000575397
In your transfer, please say, "Further credit to Bar Harbor Banking &
Trust, for the benefit of Peter Suber, routing number 011201759,
account number 80151292."
If you are able to use this procedure, then please let me know by
email when you make the transfer and for how much.  I will need that
information to learn from my bank when or whether the money has
Now it's my turn to apologize for making this so difficult to arrange.
     Many thanks,
