Key West (2)

Dear Sirs,

Regarding the column "Waarin...' by Mr. Van Lennep entitled "Plat land', (Zaterdags Bijvoegsel, 21 November) he commits the common error that many Europeans as well as Americans make. He should remember to use the word "contiguous' if he wants to make a case for Key West as the southernmost town in the United States. Since 1959, when Hawaii became the 50th State, the southernmost town had been Naalehu on the Big Island of Hawaii. "After all', it is some 500 kilometers further south than Key West.
