Dear Kate, I don't really follow you. Eliot's sense of humor and love
of practical jokes is well known as is Stevens' reputed lack of good
humor (the Hemingway incident).
And I don't know why you and Peter consider the message some kind of
joke. If you don't want to be contacted by our representative, just
say so! Yours, Tim
