Also, if you are retrieving archives via the web, you want to try to
retrieve the archival .mbox file (if there is one) rather than the
individual, periodic .txt or .txt.gz files. The .mbox has a lot of
information (headers) that isn't in the .txt files.

Try a url like

San Francisco Bay Area, California    better use your sense - B. Dylan
