QuotationI read Laurens Van Der Post's book The Dark Eye in A. some years ago and was very impressed by it. He has many other good ones too, some you would like even better as they are less abstract. I have had some correspondence with him in the past "¦ Some time ago I saw he had a book out about Russia. The ones on Africa are the best. By the way I am working along those lines a little myself: interested mostly in the religious-political messianic movements, native Churches and whatnot. Especially in Melanesia though. The Cargo cults etc. If you see anything on that, or especially anything good on the Maori, I hope you will let me know about it. I hope your health is all right now. Take care of yourself. Your spring will be coming soon, with our autumn. I think of you often and Aunt Ka too: my best love to all of you out there.
