Dear Professor Mohan Doss,

It was indeed a pleasant surprise. I just read the original RERF paper and was preparing a summary when I received your message.I shall greatly appreciate receiving a copy of your comments. Particularly so because I am keen to know your arguments for the existence of a threshold.

With warm regards
