Siaak you for sending m© the various enclosures all of which were read with
keen interest* 2hey are all being returned herewith*
I gftltt agree with yeu^that confirmation of our projected plan for my return should be
obtained by you from the President of the Alumnae Association before 1 make any definite
arrangements to leave Montreal* It wgmld facilitate matters if this confirmation could be
made available as soon as possible*  In the meantime* however* there scans to be no harm
in patting forward the following suggestions for your consideration!
te £Mmmp^aiUft,Mta.*,.lm>^ BfrM^i,
You will remember that J have been asalc&e to have a conference with Miss Stewart over
since vs came across all the Sutting biographical material* Ben*t you think it wuid be
a good idea if I were to stay off in law York on my wey to Baltiiaere iyad to have a good
talk with herf If this wore done* we should have some definite information as to her at-*
titude to lay before the Editorial Coooittet before 1 i»ak© a beginning at all* 1 could
also see whether there is anythimg at Believue #iieh sheds any further light on the H®s&p»
to era* Shis also ought to be reported to the Editorial (tamulttee*  if we could get a
gt®m light in both* 1 believe w© might got off to a better start*
- , .^^ff^ea, m^ritUpl
1 will go to the tonigratlon authorities this mek and find out where 1 stand with respect
to re**entry* 1 am afraid* hiwever* that the regulations are just as strict as ever and that
I ©ay have to go through all the red tape over again* I will see Aether all this fuss is
inevitable and will let you know* Please donft send me my invitation until you hear
further from me* 1 know that we shall have to be mry careful about dates and the e^act
wording and it may therefore be better for me to send you a draft of the letter which will
turn the trick*
I am enjoying my stay in Montreal and* after all the wining and dining* m beginning to
get fat and lasy* it is time I buckled dom to wrk again*  %ank yon for reserving my
old room* !ere*s toping I get it*
aratefully yours
