      It was in the Letters. He was talking about an encounter with a GI during WW-II, whom he condeded was personally a nice young man once you got to know him. After he made the 'dirty sponge' remark he compared what Americans did to English, the language of Chaucer, Milton, Shakespere, Pope, etc. with what what jazz, ragtime, etc. did to the piano, an instrument made for Schubert, Beehoven and Chopin. (Mrs. T. was a pianist, you may remember.)

      I'm not sure. It may have been in Letters. I know I've seen it
      before though. Possibly another message board, although this is
      really the only JRRT board I follow religiously.
