> I was honored because of the distinguished reputation of First Century Voyages for providing among the very finest educational cruises available on the planet. And I was overjoyed at the prospect of sailing the waters of England, Ireland and Wales aboard the magnificent Sea Cloud II, visiting ports well known to C.S. Lewis, while venturing to discover little known aspects of Lewis' early roots in Ireland. As an avid sailor, it had long been a distant dream of mine to initiate a series of small-ship cruises, treating different aspects of Lewis' spiritual and intellectual odyssey.
> With David Spence's call, the dream came closer to reality and, with it, the privilege of inviting you to join my wife, Jean, and me, for our inaugural "Dawn Treader Voyage" aboard the Sea Cloud II. To our great delight, Lewis' stepson, Douglas Gresham (himself a sailor of the first order), and his wife, Merrie, will be sailing with us.
> There are but 94 berths on the entire vessel and they are filling rapidly. We would love to have you aboard with us. In fact, it would be great if you could forward this to 5 friends who you think might find this rare opportunity to be of keen interest.
