    HAVING BEEN IN ENGLAND SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST, I HAVE BECOME A COMPLETE ANGLOPHILE. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, AND HAVE ALWAYS TAUGHT THAT ENGLAND IS OUR MOTHER COUNTRY IN THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET IT. I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO COME ONCE MORE BEFORE MY PASSING, SO THAT I CAN ATTEND A SHAKESPEAREAN PLAY IN THE NEW GLOBE IN LONDON, AMONG OTHER THINGS.
