I'm very sorry to hear of your accident. Hope you feel fit again. You asked about my new book. It is "Heads Up, Heels Down". a book on riding and care of horses. It will be out late I'm afraid, on account of (sp?), probably not until October. The publisher sent me these cards the other day so I thought I'd be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas. Yours, CW Anderson. A splendid gift pairing for a very special recipient. You!
