57 Francis Avenue
Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky
It was very kind and thoughtful of you to send me a copy of your letter to Professor Ferguson. I have read it with the greatest interest, and am returning it herewith for your files.
From what you say, I assume taht the Harvard University Press is not inclined to publish your book, and I do greatly hope that you will find another publisher. Your conclusions are so startlingly new and so revolutionary that most publishers are naturally frightened by them, especially when their readers are unable to conceive so great an error in the chronology of Egypt and Western Asia before Alexander as you are certain to have discovered.
The problems you present to Professor Ferguson have stumped me and I am unable to solve them on the basis of the old chronology.
With my kindest regards and best wishes,
