  1. Sir,

    I have just returned from your lecture at the Benedictine Monastary of Glastonbury in Hingham, MA and I was very impressed by your talk. It was the clearest description of Islamic tradition that I have ever heard or read. You were very clear and informative. I thank you for myself and my father who also attended and was also impressed.
