Dear John:

Thanks for your letter with its kindly references. You may indeed keep the books until you are finished with them. Verses of the Sea is a little collection now out of print and I think all of them have been culled from the other books. It was published by Macmillans for a school text. If I can locate a copy I shall send it along. It has an introduction by Sir Charles Roberts, who, strong for archaeological history, couldn't swallow the dinasaur. He ignored the explanatory passage regarding dates, the moon, stegosaur, etc. However, the introduction was kindly and helpful.

The best,
Ned.
