	Dear Liz:

	Well, by now you should be almost finished with Germany and ready for another
country.  What place will it be next? or have you had enough of travel.  Sometimes I get
tired of travelling.  In fact, I dont think I could last for three months alone right
now.  I guess, I am getting too old for just vagabonding around like you.  Or else, 
you have found some companion to spend your time with.   

	I took Bob Tucker out sailing yesterday [Sunday], and it turned out to be a
beautiful day.  There were just zillions of boats on the bay- out of Redwood City.
In fact there were traffic jams in the harbor.  It was good to get out into the 
open part of the bay.  

	Ron and I are planning a trip down the Stanislaus river this comming weekend.
We will do the Stan. on Saturday and hopefully the water will be high enough to
do the American River- the whole length- on Sunday.  I called up there and they say that
there is a good chance that the river will be flowing full on Sunday,
as they had a  lot of snow this past winter, and the rivers are still
running quite full.

	I have a new roommate- at least for the time being.  John Allen, my office 
mate.  You remember him.  We went to his house for dinner once.  Well, his marriage is
on the rocks, and he has separated.  He has only been over for a couple of days,
so I dont know all the details yet.  Anyway, it was the old story.  Paulette wants
a 9 to 5 guy, and he just didnt want to be that sort.  I also think he found a 
girlfriend who helped complicate matters... although I am not sure which was first.
In any event, the sad thing is that there are two kids to suffer the consequences of another 
broken marriage.  

	My mother called me from Tel Aviv the other day.  It seems she got worried that I didnt write.  
Could it be that my letters take longer than I expect.  I am writing this letter on Monday night,
and will mail it Tuesday morning.  Hopefully, you dill get it before you leave 
whereever you are.  If I do get a note from you from someplace else in the next few days,
I will mail a copy of this note to you there, so you will be sure to read something from me.

	The arm business is going well.  I am having a hassle with M.I.T. at the present.
They just sent me a bill for $2400 to cover Fred's expenses while he was out here
assembling the arms.  I think that is outrageous.  Not only that, they have not yet paid me
for the arms I delivered more than three months ago.  I have threatened to reposess 
the arms if they dont come across with some money pronto.  

	All else is fine.  I am well, and so is everyone else I know.  Just think, you 
are more than halfway thru you trip.  Dont forget to write to me occaisionally.\.

Yours sincerely,

Victor Scheinman
