Dear John-

Thanks very much for the lucid example of 'construct.' I got a much
clearer idea of what is meant by it from your message.

If you are willing to entertain a follow-up question, I would appreciate
your help in grasping the nature of the phenomenon which, evidently,
precedes or presences a construct, namely, 'an individual's
distinctions.' Would you comment on the nature of these?

Thanks again very much.

					Sincerely yours,
