I am sorry to think that I may be the "old gentleman" referred to by Mrs. Charles Phipps (Mary Pastor Phipps) in her letter to you, which I have just read in TIME.
I rode down on the subway reading a copy of TIME and got off at Wall Street recently. Since my age is but 59, I resent the implication of "old," if I really am the man seen by Mrs. Phipps.
