Harris and I had enjoyed today with you not only more than we imagined


Dear Dave, 

Harris and I had enjoyed today with you not only more than we imagined, more than we thought possible! Your encyclopaedic knowledge of architecture, history, literature, local and world culture not only provided a fascinating running commentary, but also wonderful conversation. Both of us are still talking about Sarum; Salisbury Cathedral's architecture and significance; the topography of Wiltshire and its roots in ancient history; the way you brought Stonehenge to life without resorting to New Age foolishness; the logic of the Avebury stones and village, and all particularly how everything works within the regional landscape and its history. 

Plus we really enjoyed talking with you, and we will certainly make sure our friends coming to London will follow you! 

Kindest regards,
Mary "Mel" McCombie and Harris Friedberg
