QuotationI have still to thank you for a couple of books of yours which came in during the past months. I appreciate them very much, though I have not yet finished both of them. I have found much that is very stimulating indeed in The Insecurity of Freedom and I have been reserving Who Is Man for a time of freedom and thoughtfulness. I should of course be always free and thoughtful but I get myself reading and thinking in terms of current work a lot of the time, and cannot always fit other things in.
