Right there on the banks of the Meuse where he composed the "Bateau ivre". . . I want to visit Nantes because it is the birthplace of my favorite boyhood writer, Jules Verne but I also want to go to Carnac and Mont St. Michel. Needless to say I'll send you quickie apercus. . . Tony assures me you're in fine shape. Durrell says you are "ecstatic."
