Dear Professor Davis,

Thank you for your inquiry. As a result of Professors Burge and
Enderton objecting to the standard of editing and presentation of the
texts that I wish to maintain, I am no longer able to collaborate with
them on a joint publication. Since I own the copyright to the
collection in its present, unfinished state, my former co-editors will
not be involved in its completion and publication, short of their
change of mind on this matter. Being unable to comprehend the notion
of publishing Alonzo Church's Collected Works without proper textual
preparation and annotation, I encourage all interested parties to
contact them directly for their side of the story.
