WARMLY INSCRIBED TO THE AUTHOR'S FRIEND PAUL ANDERSON: "Opening your package I was horrified to find you had bought Penalosa. -I see how it is, what has happened. A.C.H. [the publisher of this edition] has all or part of the Bar Cross Edition subscription have the first errata slip, pasted on the opposite page. Friend and fellow-craftsman--I am to have an other thin book-better than this one. And you are NOT to buy it. I am to give it to you. I do NOT want to pull my friend's legs, for any motive, no sir, or madam, truly. Ever your friend, Gene Rhodes".
