My dear Clarke:
I deeply appreciate your kind offer to be my host during my proposed visit to Kingston. I accept it most heartily as I have always regarded you more as a personal friend than as a professional colleague.
I do not know yet what date the Extension Department is going to arrange for me, but I scarcely think that I would have time to take on another lecture. I have a heavy schedule here and may have to go late and return early. Do not bother about a large meeting, but let it remain this way: If I have time, I will do some reading to one of your classes in an informal manner. Not a large aggregation of students in a public way at all, but just casual depending on the occasion. I intend giving the story of the 'Roosevelt' with readings and also, time permitting, some account of Newfoundland life.
