QuotationIt is some time since I have given an account of myself. [Tom] Burns sent a copy of Fowler and I am very grateful. I am studying it with much amusement and profit. I remember enjoying it when I dipped into it in past years. In those days I was mostly interested in his wit. That Graves and Hodge book is very helpful.
