ALINE [[all caps in red pencil, while rest of page is all caps in blue pencil]]

This will not be written with scalpel like objectivity 
it is just going to be small talke ----- and than the 
phone rang and I heard your very nice voice and also 
all the very nice things you said --- of wich the very 
nicest was "I love you so much darling" ---- while 
I was drawing your letter on the plane I had a fellow 
next to me of the type that just gets on planes to strike 
up conversations - he wanted to know what I was doing 
because he was curious which apparently was sufficient excuse 
in his mind [[superscript]]to ask[[/superscript]] -- I told him it was a dream --- and 
continued - The think I liked most about the monument 
was that it was a beautiful result of you & I being close 
together --- The funny thing about it is that it proves 
your point in your article soo much - that I translate everything 
into architecture ----- You could now say "He even sees his 
closest friends as stone and concrete" - Or "He looks at this reporter and" ---- and so on -

Now - just talke about things in the office.  The [[underline]]Drake "Bible School"[[/underline]] 
it is a tiny little class room building with a tiny chapel - near 
it is to be a bigger chapel - I think it is going to be O.K. 
now. - It is located next to the Science and Pharmacy Building 
we did and not far from dormitories now under construction 
- The whole thing really becomes a campus & when these 
are built Drake will really have quite a good group of new 
buildings. - If plans are accepted (Wedsday) than it will 
look like this.
