In case you missed Daisy Fried's sign off from Harriet, it’s here, at the bottom of one of her wonderful dispatches from Paris.

He is now on the mend--in fact, he's on his way home as I type this! He's hoping to start posting on Harriet soon. If you’d like to send him a note, email us at and we’ll make sure it gets to him.
