  1. I work at the Leland Library now, as Assistant Librarian and i can’t wait to request your new book. Have you read the book “Help” yet and what do you think of it.


  2. Janet, I sure appreciate your plans to request a copy of Long Shadow of the Civil War for your library! No, I haven’t read the book, “Help”; can you tell me more about it?
