Dear Michael

Thank you very much for press cutting. I must get the book
- Alan Frank has asked me to write an analytical programme [note] – which I am doing at the moment – Of course it will belong to the O.U.P. – but I feel sure that they will be delighted for you to use it if you wish.
My love to you & Eslyn
