Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'We had a few business connections with Prague in pre-war days, and our customers' knowledge of English always impressed rue, and within the last year I have read three books concenring Czechoslovakia, the most enlightening one being a fictional one "To sing with the Angels". I should say that the Czechs are one of the most progressive European people, and that after the war they will probably be the most powerful people in Central Europe. It is only to be hoped that their most useful people are not just liquidated by the Nazis.'
