I would venture a guess that Clarke has been the recipient of an
awful lot of mail - regarding all sorts of subjects - from
strangers over the years.

I'm more inclined to believe that he was simply fed-up with
receiving an overwhelming amount of correspondence on the
subject that was either hopelessly incomplete and thus next to
useless, or simply deranged.

I would not take this to mean that his 'mind is made up'.
