	I see now in a brighter light how much I needs must
learn of those things philosophical before I can reach your
altitude.  (I speak not with your knowledge of those ancient
wisdoms lent you by careful study.)  Count ignorance my crime,
then, good my lord, and do let us adjourn to email before I am
too much exposed for these weaknesses.

			I thank you for this kindness,
