I must confess that one of the best parts of any trip I make to NYC is to visit your bookstore and be received with such kindness. Today I had two big pleasures: Argosy and Renne Flemming's performance... If I have time on this trip I will again pass by your store again, otherwise I will contact you from Brazil.
