Dear Dick and Ellen and Kate and Jenny:


	We all had a  very pleasant weekend in Petrolia,  in spite of
the assortment  of disturbing incidents.  Liz  is feeling much better
but has decided to take the  rest of the week off from work,  because
she doesn't want to try driving with one arm...yet. (I guess that she
is  sort of glad about having a good excuse for taking sick leave, as
she was feeling quite overworked anyway).  

	Ron and  I  have just  about  finished off  the last  of  the
Matzos.   The 10 lbs.   we bought was  just about enough.   Keep that
number in mind for next year.  At the rate Petrolia is going,  you'll
probably be having to pick and choose your seders next year. 

	For me, the weekend  was pleasant because for the  first time
in several  months I was able to forget about  Vicarm for a couple of
nights and  relax a  bit.   Unfortunately, today  I was  back at  the
"company",  attending  to the  seemingly  never  ending problems  and
details  which keep me  anxious and busy  too much of the  time.  I'm
formally taking  a leave  of absence  from  Stanford for  the next  3
months to hopefully straighten out the business situation. 

	Enclosed is  the check for $6,000 I  promised you, but forgot
to deliver.  As  I have no  immediate need for the  money, use it  as
long as you need to.   I strongly approve of the house,  and feel you
made a  good choice.  Actually, I feel for  Barry and Kathy as I find
it hard to believe that even 40 acres in Idaho can be better than 3/4
acre in Petrolia.  But thats their choice. 

	I hope Mom is doing well.  I know that when we left there was
still  some lingering  tension from  the morning  encounter.   I feel
responsible for  most of the  hard feelings,  for it  was I who  very
briefly mentioned  the silver dollar situation to  Mom, not realizing
that it would snowball.  I regret saying anything.  It was none of my
business, and on  second thought, I now  feel that was a  good reward
choice.  I apologize, and hope that you've all forgotten the scenes. 

	I've  made a reservation for  Mom on Sun, April  6, 11:20 AM-
flight 17, and will plan on meeting her at the San  Francisco Airport
when she arrives. \.
