        Ugh, I really am sorry for my faulty memory on this. I lost my own files
on this as the result of problems associated with the lightning strike's
effect on my ex-laptop. I asked Jerry and his vague recollection was the
same as mine but he couldn't confirm because Pratt had done a lightning
strike on him and forced him to delete files.
        Further, the archives are incomplete here--- there clearly was an exchange
between you and Ajit between the end of August and 6 Sept but it is not
included in the archive. Unfortunately, too, the archive comes to an abrupt
halt on 8 Sept. (Does anyone know why?) The only mention I have found is
one where you note without comment Ajit's praise for Lapides on the missing
book question. (If you have copies of the entire exchange, I'd be very
interested in seeing it.)
        In any event, although I know you thought very highly of the book, I'm
very sorry for attributing to you a position that you had not advanced.
                best wishes,
