Dear Matt,

According to Harvard’s library catalog, the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has a copy of Indian Dialectics available through ILL. Their home base is in Chicago: 
(800) 621-6044 x773
6050 S. Kenwood Avenue, Chicago, IL 60637-2804

There is also a hardcopy in the Harvard library, so if you can’t get it any other way, let me know and I’ll make a PDF.

I’m happy to see you promote her work, which has otherwise remained in the shadows.
