Dear old Earle:
Your Down the Long Table is a gorgeous bit of autobiographical analysis. Vi and I are reading it now. Your poetry, and Turvey and this put you in the driver's seat in Canada as far as variety of gifts are concerned. And you got a grand road ahead of you yet.
How you managed to concoct those names of the inquisitors is a triumph Reksky, Arnup, Sather, Dirty Dirkin and countless others probably had their prototypes.
I anticipate great sales for this book.
Here is a story for Esther. Hand it on to her.
Am sending the Star review of your book.
