"It was a pleasure to accept the challenge, Allen, and I'm delighted that I was able to help you.
I felt like an MI5 agent hunting down a secret document, with all the security checks I had to undergo!" -- a quote from her post on Post Your Good News.

I will mail Jayne a copy of the meeting handout after I get back. The title of the paper is "A Contrarian View of Catullus' Dates". Her efforts at providing visible photographic supplements to a cramped footnote by an otherwise clear writer might impress some who can read enlarged very small print in ancient tongues.

I'd really like Book Eta by Sappho, but that's been out of print for decades. Shaun, can you find a copy? Even at the corner bodega?

Talking Thank you once more. Here is a mischievous grin 哂.

Jayne, your physical photos arrived today, and they are very good. With them I was able to definitely resolve an important question about a very small letter that might have been an "l" or an "i" in favor of an "l". So I'm giving out a grin 哂 (alongside a dopey and hopelessly irrelevant not-too-common Chinese character [also a grin] that I rather like which looks like a rice wine bottle adjacent to a mouth on its left -- you may ignore it if you like -- perhaps someone else will recognize it). Fear not the funny faces from this end, smile also, be happy. Will correspond further by molecular mail. Best, Allen.

I'm glad the snail mail brought you the important photocopies in time, Allen.
Break a leg on Thursday, and thank you for making me out to be a saint... which I ain't!
But I do try to be a good person.

Jayne
