This copy from the personal library of journalist and language writer William Safire, with a handwritten, unsigned note by Safire on his New York Times Stationary laid in which reads "Leny -- 1. Interesting stuff herein - 2. Think about a wall system! #3." Having come across a few other similar notes and letters, we assume Leny here is Safire's brother Leonard Saffir.
