"Stoking engine" [1][letterhead]March 21.My dear friendHow good of you to send me the advance copy of your new book. I take it as an honor, and a token of warm friendship and it takes its place with my other treasured books from you. Did they persuade you to change the title? I liked "When I was a Boy" better than its present name. I imagine you let other people have their own way about what you look upon09993
