Dear Mr. Lynch:

Thank you for your letter. I am glad that you liked ATLAS SHRUGGED. I am particularly happy when businessmen understand me—because, like John Galt, I feel that they are the great victims for whom I am fighting.

If I should visit Youngstown, I will certainly take advantage of your kind invitation—only you’ll have to teach me the art of trout fishing, which I’ve never done, but would love to learn.

Cordially yours,


Ayn Rand
