While you were publishing "Romancing the Rails" (March 24), my wife and I were journeying from Vancouver, B.C., to Halifax, N.S., on VIA, Canada's version of Amtrak. Our trip was booked through Rail Travel Center, 9 Congress St., St. Albans, Vt. We can't speak too highly of them. Their service is exceptional. Also, Canada has a rail pass, CANRAILPASS, not mentioned in your article on rail passes. MARK HOFFMAN San Clemente

In Part I, the Mormon Church had been unsettled by the purported discovery of a series of 19th-Century documents. Produced by a young collector named Mark Hofmann, they appeared to question official church history. In 1984, Hofmann had revealed the Salamander Letter, which gave a new, startling account of Prophet Joseph Smith's discovery of the gold plates.

Charlotte Russe Inc. said fiscal third-quarter profit dropped 39% despite a 10.4% gain in sales. Mark Hoffman, chief executive of the San Diego-based retailer of young women's apparel, attributed the downturn to an early Easter holiday, which advanced sales into the second quarter, and strong year-earlier results. The company operates 388 stores under the Charlotte Russe and Rampage flags. Net income totaled $3.3 million, or 14 cents a share, compared with $5.

An art expert says a watercolor found in the police property room may be the work of the late master Marc Chagall. Lt. Mike Pera noticed the 1 1/2-foot-by-2-foot painting while preparing unclaimed property for auction. "I looked at it out of curiosity and saw it was signed by Marc Chagall," he said Friday. 'Very Early Work' Art expert Mark Hoffman of Maxwell Galleries inspected the watercolor and said it could be a Chagall. If so, he said, "it is a very early work, a very sketchy one."
