Notes on Werner Sombart's Haendler und Helden --- Patriotische Besinnungen

Dear Mr Miller

I have just learned that Ted had a heart attack while swimming off Barbados and was dead by the time he was brought ashore.

I shall miss him very much now that I am giving my mind to other things I having been trying to withdraw somewhat. However, he bullied me into summarising a book which he could not obtain but which is in the Nationalbibliothek, Vienna. I believe he intended to circulate my summary - I don't know whether to the whole group or just to afew. Anyway, here it is. Please do what you like with it. If anybody wants to raise questions about it, I shall do my best to respond - but reluctantly if this would involve going back to the Library and getting the book out again.

Best wishes

Ronald Moore, (Ronald Moore, 3 Apr 05)
