Dear Professor Pfeiffer,

In August 1942 you were very kind to read my Mns dealing with reconstruction of Ancient History, and to comment favorably. Since then I worked on improving my Mns; I added a number of important chapters, and following your suggestion, added sections on art.

A short time ago I submitted the second half of the Mns. to Mr. Hatcher, a director of the Oxford University Press (the first half I submitted earlier). Mr. Hatcher, who showed much interest in my work, expressed his willingness to apply to you, asking you to be a reader of the Mns.

I hope you will soon hear from them and I shall be glad if you will accept their offer.

Very sincerely yours,

Immanuel Velikovsky
