Mr. Robert Penn Warren
Thanks for the news.
May I assume that your statement (which is as guarded and ambiguous in its language as that usually employed by a British diplomat) that “it is impossible before September 10” means that you actually will be back on September 10?
If you will be and if you can contrive to give a day to the work on September 10th , 11th, 12th, or 13th, we would like to hold up the question and answer period until then, since not enough time would be gained by sending Nan up there to justify the operation. I do not, however, want to go beyond Friday, September 13th, because turning it into manufacturing after that date would put a squeeze on us.
I hope the building situation looks better, and that everyone is well.
Hastily, with love to all.
