Comments: Friendly letter asking him to contribute some short stories to a "series of books we're working hard on..." It is an interesting form, once you get the feel of it, and you will find yourself among worthy contemporaries, I think.....We have some swell stories from William March and Arthur Calder-Marshall, etc. etc. and we would be proud to have you in the human history of the year as well" ..... "As you may have heard...poor Laurence got diptheria...and then Apple-Joan caught it from a distance, and the three of us lived happily in Infektionhaus in Innsbruck for 3 weeks...We plan to stay another year for financial reasons particularly and I have to produce another baby in about a fortnight's time, all of which takes time off from work..."

I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
