In 1958, I wrote to him to ask what the requirements were for membership in
the Society. His reply:

"The sole requirement for membership in the Linguistic Society of America
is an interest in language."
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
