Lengthy author inscription dated 5/28/93 to front free endpaper: "To Patt - Serendipity--or is it beautiful logic that we should meet precisely 30 years after my first Peace Corps recruiting trip to your neck of the rational [national?] woods, San Francisco and Los Angeles. With you as the new director of Recruiting, I am confident that the new Peace Corps will once again become a spectacular garden of idealism, political savvy and good works. And hey - revolution! A woman with a presidential appointment and an Associate Directorship! It makes this female oldtimer's heart sing. I'm your instant fan and willing slave to our darling Peace Corps. Coates."
