Dear Professor Randall:

I am enclosing a copy of The Objectivist Newsletter for May 1963, which contains my review of your book Aristotle. Perhaps you will find it of interest.

Although I have to disagree with you on a number of issues, I regard your book as of great value and importance on today’s cultural scene. Please accept my compliments.
