Delayed answer to RandallÆs letter because too upset. Surprised at the
otherÆs resentment; as a manager or official of the club, his objection to RandallÆs
admission was not personal, but rather social. Believed that Randall did not have close
connections to others in the club, which is a requisite of admission. Exhorts Randall to
calm and reasonable behavior. Will apologize or fight him if shown that Jay had insulted
his honor or had erred in his decision.
