Dear Mr. Shalit:

Thank you for your letter and your invitation to participate in an anthology to be called The Childhood Day I Will Always Remember.

I appreciate your invitation, and I regret that I am not able to accept it. The reason is that I do not regard any particular day of my childhood as especially memorable. What I regard as significant are certain trends and intellectual developments in my childhood, but not single days or events.
