    I once received a long letter from CJS Purdy. If I can find it I might post it. It may be of historical interest.

    I have just read in Chess Notes the terrible news that Bob Long, of Thinkers Press in Iowa, USA, has been murdered in his home a few days ago. Bob was the driving force behind reprinting a lot of Cecil Purdyís writings and I had been corresponding with him a lot lately on his latest reprint of my Purdy book. Itís a big shock and his contribution to chess literature will be greatly missed.

    and fighting against those humourless bureaucrats who are forever lost in the minutiae.
