QuotationThanks for the word in the silence. I am sorry only of the occasion for it. I had as a matter of fact heard very indirectly of Ted Andrews' death, from a Benedictine down this way who is interested in Shakers because his monastery is in an old Shaker Village. Also, on the day you wrote the letter I was sending the Preface to Faith [Andrews], so everything is all right. At least I hope it is all right. I enjoyed writing the preface and brought a lot of Blake into it. Let's hope that it serves its purpose. Ted Andrews is a loss: he had such a wonderful sense of all those things. I think his book will be great, though I have not actually seen the pictures, only the text. The list of pictures alone is exciting.
