Dear Richard,

In 1972, I published a modification of the Movat Pentachrome stain in the
old HistoLogic newsletter that was published by Miles Lab Tek and edited by
Lee Luna- it was my first paper.  My modification takes only three or four
hours as opposed to a day and a half for the original Movat method and
utilizes an acid orcein Verhoeff hematoxylin for nuclei and elastica
instead of Weigerts hematoxylin and aldehyde fuchsin in separate steps.
The results are beautiful.  If you are interested , send me your fax number
and I can send you a xerox of the original.  You may have to substitute
Crocein scarlet MOO for the woodstain scarlet and you can make paella with
the alcoholic saffron solution!
Hope this helps.
