Letter 045, pg. 2


when you finish reading the book. I would be very grateful if you wrote me a few words about it when you find a convenient time. I am asking this for myself personally, and (if you like the book) I promise not to abuse your name and opinion for the purpose of literary advertising.

Please pardon my Soviet orthography. I was brought up in a Soviet university, and now do not know how to write otherwise. I am not at all confident in my Russian style, because in the recent years I have written, thought, and worked in English, and I hope you forgive me.

With deep respect,

Ayn Rand
