3of shame and reluctance to despoil you almost rudely declined. I have no picture of you here, and should much appreciate if I might have your portrait by me. May I come and get it when your house is again in order?Your books have been an enormous inspiration to me, and to no one intellectually, I think, am I more indebted than to you, in these latter years. I am having the daring to send you a gift on my part, which I can only hope you may like.Please remember me most kindly to your daughterand believe me,Very sincerely yours,[illegible]
