As a fan of Mr. Cooke's programs for some thirty-five years I have heard him
refer to H. L. Mencken in a number of his talks. I have tried to find a book
or other publication by Mr. Mencken in which he explores the English language
and the relationships of the versions spoken in Britain and America. Perhaps
you could give me some guidance in this quest? Alternatively perhaps I could
write to him directly. Would you happen to know the name and address of his
most recent publisher?
Any hints and help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
