Dear Prof. Kim,
Thank you for your email and the report on your important research.

I am only sorry to say that I was disappointed to note that you have  
not used the scholarly system of Romanisation, the so-called MR system  
which was devised by the three leading Korean phoneticians of the  
early twentieth century. The current government system is inaccurate  
and leads to mispronunication. I would hope that you would not use  
this system in the future as it creates confusion for people who do  
not speak Korean.

Thank you for informing us of this valuable resource. If there are any  
copies available, the East Asian Studies Library at The University of  
Sheffield would be pleased to receive a copy.

Yours sincerely,
James H. Grayson
