Thank you for the huge check! I had no idea you were going to do this. I was meaning to go to Salt Lake City in any case, but this will make it a lot easier.
Later this summer I will move to New York and begin studying at Columbia University. I’ll still have some access to the computer in Princeton, and I’ll consult from time to time on the publication of the remaining Velikovsky manuscripts, but otherwise my stint here will be over in a few months.
Now for a progress report on The Universe of Motion. All of your corrections have been entered; the first batch of pre-publication announcements have gone out—that is, the complete ISUS mailing list (about 105 people) and the first list that you sent me. I am now working on the second list. I am in consultation with Hannah Kaufmann at the Computer Center here, who knows all about typesetting books, so that we can go into print very soon. The illustrations are reportedly being done, and I hope to have them by the end of the week. I'll need them before sending out the book to be set.
Meanwhile, I am about half way through chapter 3 of The Basic Properties of Matter which will be published in the next issue of Reciprocity. This issue will also include Halprin’s paper and the one by Ron Satz.
So, things are on the right track, even if slightly behind schedule. I'm hoping, once this book is out, that you will go full steam ahead on the middle volume, and I’m willing to do anything I can to expedite it.
My best - and warmest regards to Dorothy,
