QuotationYou are perhaps wondering what has become of the preface I was asked by him to write for Religion in Wood. I have been delayed, by a variety of tasks and chores. But the preface is now finished and needs only to be retyped. I will get it in the mail to you perhaps this week, perhaps later. But in any event I will be as quick about it as I can. In the preface I have been bold enough to bring in quite a lot about William Blake. I hope you will not think this too venturesome, but I thought it would be worthwhile to write a preface that was an essay in its own right, and I hope it will add to the book. The text which Ted sent is very clear, interesting and even inspiring, as was all that he wrote. I am most eager to see the new material in the illustrations.
