It is very hard for you - When the years mutiply the sorrows do also.I am loth to give you up. A talk from you, of 35 minutes, say, on the Forests(?) would mean so much, and 04821
be fruitful of so much awakened interest and good on this [illegible]ed, vital, question.Wont you reconsider? It need be any of our dates of meeting between September 20th and next April, to suit yourself. ? ? ? No, I have not "Stickeen!" I have none of your books.
