There Was a .41

RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 2, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I enjoyed the story about the Dylan-Cash session in Nashville [“Page Two,” Dec. 2]. Actually, a Colt .41 revolver was produced around 1900 for a while.
    I know this not because of any knowledge about guns, but because a Huddie Ledbetter song described an altercation involving a Colt .41 and a woman. My reaction was the same as yours, that he had used a number that rhymed. Research proved me wrong.
