I am in complete agreement with your proposed conditions for dialogue. The one thing I cannot promise is to reply too quickly. The reason for this, apart from various matters, may prove to be my trip to Suzdal, planned for the immediate future.
I do have one request for you (on which I am by no means able to insist). Inasmuch as you will be the one asking questions (at least in the beginning), I would request that you provide your version of a response with every question.
The reply of Vladimir Moss.
