My dear Jil,
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation on my last correspondence with you.
My dear Jack,
I woke up this morning thinking about you, your circumstances and challenges. I know you spent yesterday putting out fires. Your faith was really stretched but somehow you survived! Whew! There are one or two opportunities out there and you need that one deal to come through, at least to relieve some pressure. But things seem to be slow moving and even dependent on one or two things. You know I read something from Hemingway. He said courage is grace under pressure. When I think of you that statement comes to mind.
