In Response to: The bookseller

As a frequent traveler to Paris, I often walk past the Shakespeare and Company bookstore, named for Sylvia Beach’s original shop. The article on The Letters of Sylvia Beach by Keri Walsh *09 (Alumni Scene, July 7) points out that Miss Beach began her life in the place she called “D.O.P.” (Dear Old Princeton). She is spending eternity there as well. On a recent stroll through the Princeton Cemetery, I discovered her grave, with its modest tombstone engraved with only her name and dates.
