    Robert De France was very helpful and patient. He took time to encourage me to explore Language as an Art. I have a solid foundation, a dicipline in the structure of sentances, paragraphs, and writing papers because I know the rules of writing......and when I can break them...just kidding Professor! I ThAnK YOU again for all of your kindness
