    Well, between us I hope we have replaced some superstition with a bit of
    understanding, but there are those who wish to keep their bogy-men.
    Your Celestaire catalogue arrived a couple of days ago, and I must say that
    I am most impressed about how informative it is.
    As for the books you sell, I know many of them well, and I think you give
    very fair appraisals of their contents.
    Looking at the list of books, it seems to me that the publication you
    suggested last wook would be striking out in something of a new direction
    for Celestaire. Not that there's anything the matter with that! Am I right?
    Yours, George.
