"Thank you do very much for your notes..., Jennifer. They are so very useful for me, as I am abysmal at perceiving the good and not so good qualities of my own writing.... Your candid comments and your suggestions about re-ordering the contents will be very useful. Your ideas and suggestions will leave an indelible imprint on whatever comes out of this entire colloquy."
