This is a note I sent to Gene early on in our friendship—one of many such expressions through the years.
Thanks, friend Gene, for your kind and generous gift of Dialogues with Myself. Since chatting with you on Friday, I have taken time to read and browse and find the book absolutely delightful. I get a sense of Mormon letters coming of age and am thrilled to be an observer (not a voyeur) at its puberty rites.
You have made a significant contribution to the discipline; you have done much to make a discipline out of a field. I am grateful to you and rejoice in associating with you.
And I am also a devotee of Charlotte’s concoctions.
