Re: The Electric Shepherd
Dear CK,

We agree much more about the difficulty of knowing what "really happened"
and the problems of relying on Kinbote.

You asked about the cat. I think it's an emissary of the author laughing
at Kinbote for not knowing what a lemniscate is (the cat's bow), but so far
only one person believes that, and he has the honor to subscribe himself

Your very humble servant,

P.S. Good luck with the passport! I was in that situation a few years ago,
and it all worked out.
