6.3 Exercise with Narrowing

Write a function that will display the first 60 characters of the current buffer, even if you have narrowed the buffer to its latter half so that the first line is inaccessible. Restore point, mark, and narrowing. For this exercise, you need to use save-restriction, widen, goto-char, point-min, buffer-substring, message, and other functions, a whole potpourri.
