Courdert, powerful international law attorney, on America's initiative in helping to rebuild post-war Europe, in part: "...There is also the fact that Europe has no realization of the necessity to meet certain primary questions on her responsibility, and before this realization comes to the people of Europe, they will probably need to go deeper into the ditch than they are now...When Europe has realized that America cannot be called upon for sacrifice until they, who are infinitely more interested than we are, have made their sacrifice, then I hope it will be possible to secure support at this end..."

I usually receive my packages as soon as delivered. However, this one had quite a night outside in a snow storm. Thanks to the extra care in packaging and double layer of wrapping cardboard and plastic bag, the book survived in pristine condition.... It sat in a three foot snow drift pounded by snow plows, in minus 25Temps overnight and was discovered this afternoon, the top of the package peeking out of the drift. If not for the attention to packaging and packing materials, this book would have been destroyed. Please let the people who package our treasures know that they make a difference. Whether in person or mail order, you folks rock. Best wishes from the (damned) frozen Adirondacks... - E.E.
