  1. Dear Mr Levin
    I have just come across ‘your’ (?) article entitled ‘Alsatia’ on the internet.
    I am a member of the Whitefriars Club; our toast commemorates, among other things, those “who, broken by fortune, dwell in Alsatia’. I was thinking of including an article in the next Journal on Alsatia and I would like to include yours. I have seen your comments on copyright. What credit would you like?
