where I'm at
I am writing to you from rare books and manuscripts at the Kroch library, Cornell, Ithaca. I hope you are well. I am waiting for some boxes of stuff so I can race through them with my digital camera. Yesterday I travelled from Baltimore to Philadelphia (where I had a meeting) then Philadelphia to NY then NY to Ithaca. It wasn't easy but it happened. Soon I will publish my unexpurgated tour diary, at which point you will learn the truth of my extensive travels. I warn you: there are visits to archives even more extraordinary than these. Hold on to your collective hat.
