Dear Rose Wilder Lane:

Thank you for your note on “The Fountainhead” in the National Economic Council’s Book Reviews. I was startled to see it, and I appreciate it very much.

I want to congratulate you on your review of the Bastiat books. It was a masterful job. I shall look forward with real pleasure and interest to future copies of this magazine. It is such a rare treat to read intelligent book reviewing for a change.

I am sorry that I did not have a chance to see you while I was in New York, but I hope that we shall meet some day in person, as we certainly must.

With best regards,
