> Dear Dr. Goldman,
> Interim President Garber asked me to respond to you on his behalf.  Please forgive the delay.  
> In consultation with the Provost's Office at Harvard, the Harvard University Press Board of Directors, and Harvard University Press, the Murty Classical Library of India Oversight Board decided to make changes to the MCLI Editorial Board at the end of 2023.  These changes were consistent with the governance requirements that such boards be periodically reconstituted and closely aligned with the original mission of the series and are within the purview of those who made the decision. 
> I appreciate your concern.  The end result notwithstanding, I agree that the members of the editorial board are all remarkable scholars who have made outstanding contributions to this series.  We are fully committed to continuing the excellent work that they have done.   
> Best,
