I have already read with great interest the condensations...I look forward with anticipation to reading the whole book...I was delighted to receive the book about Tibet written by the impressive gentleman who sat next to me at the Ends of the Earth dinner...The fallout shelted biscuits came through in fine shape...I must say they are very good, although I hope the day never arrives when we shall have need to use them...New York State is far ahead of the rest of the country in their preparation...'
