To Danielle James

My copy of the above named book arrived on Monday - and what a pleasant surprise.  Having paged through the book and read a bit I must congratulate you all on this valuable contribution to the literary and botanical record and history of South Africa. We are really privileged to have so many wonderful books documenting virtually every facet of our natural history – and the people to write them!  I hope that the book will do much to raise an interest in the conservation and renewable use of our incredibly beautiful hardwood trees.  I hope that the book launch went well.  Thank you for all the hard work and perseverance shown by Stephanie, Barry, the publishers and yourself. It was a pleasure to be of some help.  Please pass my thanks to all concerned.
