Dear old Jack:
Thanks for the munificent cheque. It was manna from heaven.
The books came today. They look lovely. As for the great John Milton, may I say that if we meet in the empyrean and he objects to the company, I'll give him a Newfoundland kick in the posterior and send him down to Pandemonium to keep company with the rest of the black-winged archangels. He may be a great bastard but still a bastard. I am blushing already.
