have i been too presumptious
? have i been pushing my luck
? i have tried to stay clear of too many assumptions
and to keep my sins
down to just overcompleteness
. am i too concerned
about this? i can never be sure...
if you have been "overcomplete", it is only because you are a talented
emissary, if i read that right. i dont know in what way you could be
pushing your luck or over-reaching assumptions. we are two mutually
interested states sharing what i believe is important, in open amity, free from deception.

i'm glad to know that you are you; it doesn't matter critically that you
are not here now, but simply that you exist. as adam smith demonstrated,
trade between states, based on comparative advantage, constitutes the
wealth of nations.
