Dear Hr* Leeman :
First of all, please let me explain why
your most welcome letter has remained so long unanswered*
Since the early summer, circumstances related to a complicated family situation have led to anxiety and distress
but I am now trying to face up to the fact that LIFE MUST
&0 ON in spite of theur* This noble aphorism may come in
handy during your exploration of the Anatomy of Melancholy,
a literary enterprise that intrigues me tremendously* I
would dearly like to know how you are going to approach it.
M eanwhile, I will bone up on Mr. Butler the next time I
go to the University Library and thus get ready to be an
admiring and intelligent reader* More power to youJ
You ask whether I "have Jlone anything more" about you
know what* If I had tried to answer thirt j#ia«64©n a month
ago, I should have had to tell you that this time EJ really
had had it and must call it a day* How, I am not so sure*
But, if I were to have another go at it, it ^m^ki^^m^^>
^be from quite a different angle* Furthermore^ I should
have to be completely free from all other obligations ~
especially from JPH* M ay I write about all this, perhaps
at greater length, a little later on?
Your letter made me homesick for the Laurentians* The
colours are muted here although in Stanley Park the crimson
thread of the vine maples stands out in vivid contrast to
tfee sombre background of the Douglas firs* The autumn has
been sunay and warm and my  Christmas roses have prejiaturely
burst into bloom instead of waiting for their appointed
Hoping that all goes well with the settling-in process
and with all good wishes
