Call me next time. Somehow I didn’t even know this was happening, but wouldn’t have minded attending. For one thing, as I think I’ve told you, I admire Peter Buchanan-Smith’s work. Even if I’ve heard his “how I came to New York” story before.
Plus I love being around people who are “dressed in quite a sophisticated British kind of way.”
