Saint Valentine's Day, 1944

Most Valentine's Day presents don't last 62 years, but this one has. Between Tears and Laughter by Lin Yutang is a book about Chinese philosophy. I found it at a sale yesterday. A minds-on Valentine present, but with an elegant gift inscription:

Saint Valentine's Day, 1944

My Dear -

This book speaks as you have so often - simply and with a beautiful charity. It restates without the crustations of a weary, aged cynicism the breathtaking essence of what we know as Christianity!
