3 Notes from the Classroom

From: King, Alexander J
To: Ian Allen
Subject: Lecture cap inquiry
Date: Sat, 8 Apr 2017 05:22:52 -0400

Professor Allen,

My name is Alexander King and I'm a computer science engineering student
at The University of Toledo, Ohio. I came across a video of you rapping
the other day. I must say it was entertaining. After that I went on to
find your website <http://www.idallen.com/>. I'm writing to inquire if
any of your lectures have been recorded and if you're able and willing to
share them with me? Your <http://teaching.idallen.com> is amazing as it
is but I figured I would ask if actual lectures were out there somewhere.

All the best,
Alexander J King
