RÉFÉRENCE 02 360 03
RPS/rh/91/81 19 March 1981

Dear Hardy,

I recently was contacted by Wendall L. Winn at Richmond &
Fishburn in Charlottesville who said that they were referred to me by
you. This is just a note to thank you for the referral and to express
the hope that you are in good health and spirits.

One of my regrets in life is that you do not live in the
village of Puyricard so that I might stop over one evening a week (bringing
with me of course a bottle of vintage wine) and be able to chat with you
so that I might come to understand better some of the problems that
perplex me. It is a comfort to know, though, that you are still in
Charlottesville and that I shall be able to see you if I come back.

My kindest regards to you and your wife.

Sincerely,

[handwritten signature]

Ronald P. Sokol
