"Thank you so much for your card about the new edition of Farmer Giles, so kind of you to write.  The cover is an adaptation of the second cover I did for the book- after the original one 40 years ago! The new edition, with the Hammer's erudite notes, has a new map, added or done this year.
It was a joy to have you encouragement and thank you again.
I hope all is well with you.
Happy Christmas and every best wish- sincerely Pauline"
