I respect YOUR integrity as a designer and producer of fonts. I mean no
or malappropraite intent, I am just cash-poor these days. I'd love to be
to purchase cast sets of CASLON one day, say from you or M&H, but money

BTW, you are a GREAT MENTCH in my humble opinion, and I hope I haven't
offended you or anyone in the great profession of Typography.
