11 Some of our Graduates -—..their Contribution to. Margin*?*
I am entirely in accord with the views which you express on pages 5 and 4 of your report and especially with your statement teat "this ?olunie la a history and not a book of
biographical studies** I realise# however* that the solution ©f this thorny problem will
not be easy to find*
l£MLJHak§^^fJ&^a i
In my  judgnent* the total length of the history should not yce$a& £50 pages of print--.
matter* including appendices and index* Die com^ete^^i^uiarSot be more mmToISy^
than the ^he&my history but a careful selection of format and typography might iaake it
possible to Include more subject matter within this limitation* Jhe advice of any reL
ble-jmbliaher would be helpful and should be sought at an early date*
I hearily agree that a comprehensive index is both necessary and desirable*
Overall ffitle %
tte suggested title does not seam to me to be at all suitable and I am definitely op-
ad to its use* I should like more time to reflect before f    feing alternatives*
Introduction and ■£.o:^:c-::i-/-d|^onts t
I doubt whether any joint statement could be prepared which world be equally satisfactory
to both authors and therefor-      s that each of ub  should, write her cm* However* a
brief preface* indicating the basis of their collaboration* should be prepared jointly
and signed by both authors*
Ifog.Stble. visit to Bait Lores
I shall probabl.    a the vicinity of Baltimore early in October and shall take this
opportunity of i      Bay roanueeript with certain original sources* Would it be possible
