" 14 East 95th St.
New York City
MAY 11, 1952
Meant to write to you the day the Angler arrived, just to thank you, the woodcuts alone are worth ten times the price of the book, what a weird world we live in when so beautiful a thing can be owned for life -- for the price of a ticket to a Broadway movie palace, or 1/50th the cost of having one tooth capped.
Well, if your books cost what they're worth I couldn't afford them!
You'll be fascinated to learn ( from me that hates novels) that I finally got round to Jane Austen and went out of my mind over Pride & Prejudice which I can't bring myself to take back to the library till you find me a copy of my own.
Regards to Nora and the wage-slaves.
