Thank you for your help.  Here is a solution that works for me:

class PageNumberOne(Flowable):
  def draw(self):
class FsiDocTemplate(SimpleDocTemplate):
  "resets page number"
  def afterFlowable(self, flowable):
    if isinstance(flowable, Receipt.PageNumberOne):
      self.canv._pageNumber = 0

Then I add to my story a PageNumberOne and a reportlab.platypus.PageBreak to
start a new section with page number at 1.

Thanks again.

David S.
