Alistair,

As always your letter gives clear instructions for a path
ahead, and will stir me into action – although that action is most likely
to be a cry for help or relief. This is like so many things, frightening until
I can become immersed in the minutiae – and as you suggest, that
immersion to do the job properly can wait a while if LISTING rather than
REGISTERING is the initial goal.

I had only about twenty names suggested in total from the
last time that I asked for contributions from members – which meant that
I would have to go out hunting for names myself. Not impossible, but even
writing down things that I hear or see at shows needs a certain dedication,
and, to be honest, gingers are my interest, not aroids!

I must digest your two very good letters, and will try to
move ahead on this in the few days before I go off to a two-month contract in UK. Do what I
can in the time …

Regards, Derek

Alistair,

As always your letter gives clear instructions for a path ahead, and will stir me into action ? although that action is most likely to be a cry for help or relief. This is like so many things, frightening until I can become immersed in the minutiae ? and as you suggest, that immersion to do the job properly can wait a while if LISTING rather than REGISTERING is the initial goal.
