I wish you to know that I think very highly of Gerald Faris' story, "Testy Prof. Wonderful Sees Only Darkness in Intellectual Decay," (Times, April 5). It needs a slight emendation; you spoke of my last lecture in Australia as being the 1,459th. This suggests that I have given only 1,459 lectures. This is cruelty to my history. It is 1,459 lectures outside the classroom and outside of my TV programs around the world. I have given over 20,000 lectures in the classroom and some 2,000 television programs around the world on my demonstrations.
