    Dear Dr. Chew,

    I have finished reading the Destruction Myths’ section. You had also assigned us a reading from the section Ritual and Myth. How much of this section in Introduction to Mythology do you want us to read. You did not list it above, it seems like you copied part of the homework assignment from last time. (This is for Greek and Roman Mythology.)
