It is very easy.  You can obtain the sequence of interest by gopher or
e-mail, if you noted the accession number.

The gopher site is IUBIO in Indiana (ftp.bio.indiana.edu).  Look for
Genbank-Sequences directory, select it, and a new menu will appear with
several search options.  You can either search the entire Genbank or only
the updates with the acession number.

The e-mail retrieval server is retrieve at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.  First send a
message with 'help' on a single line in the body of the mail message to
this server, in order to know how to use it.
