[Au-]thenticated [[Strikethrough]] f [[/Strikethrough]] by Friedlander & [[?]] & described in Georges Marlier book on "A. Benson et la peinture à Bruges au temps de Charles-Quints" - Of course this was for Insure Tax relief not generosity on my part. Now a new thing has been assailling we this last November. The land Conservation has definately decided to take my Shangri-La. Effective end of March 1972

So away I will have to go where I do not know.... if I survive this terrible wrenching from this beloved place I might end up in France Greece or Italy.... I have no idea.

Of course this place, being bigger than Monaco, and adjacent to Toronto the taxes were horendous. I shall be better off financially but much poorer sentimentally

Actually I would rather be poor in $.. for all money can give when the One you have is gone what is left.... O My biggest regret is that you never saw this lovely place I know both of you would have appreciated it. But it is appreciated!

I could chat for hours about all these things close to my heart.
