My dear Herbert:

Thanks for everything. I should have replied before but a long cold kept me from attending to my duties.

That is an excellent thing on Hamlet. It just came to hand in the R.S. transactions. I am going to hand it around my class. It is so crystalline.

And many thanks for the Review – so generous of you!

Vi & Claire send their New Year's best to you.

affectionately
Ned.
