Hi Wils!

I had a similar problem with an old picture of my father in law, which was also printed on textured paper.... (aaarrrgghh!!!).... So, after downloading you picture I followed the same procedure as with mine:

1) Run it through Neat Image.....
(a free, excellent program for removing noise etc.) which can be found here

2) I selectively run the Dust&Scratches Filter on the parts that still showed some faint texture

3) Added some noise.

It's far from perfect and it has lost some of its sharpness, but at least the texture is gone!!!

...and here is the result:
