Dear Don:-

Heh! Heh! Just got your letter today.

No can do on the reconstruction of what you so flatteringly call my "speech" at the Cinvention. As you ought to remember, it wasn't a speech; since I didn't know I was on for one and didn't have anything prepared. It was strictly off the cuff, and I have not the foggiest notion what I talked about. I don't even know whether or not it sounded like anything at the time -- but just between you and me, I'm tickled pink that the wire broke. Heh! Heh!

I have shuddered many times at the idea that some of that "speech" might be played back at me some time; and I chortle with glee. Heh! Heh!

My very best to Lou and Stan and Roy, as well as some for yourself.



E.E. Smith, Ph.D.
