Dear Mr Editor:
Thank you very much for your complimentary copy of Saturday, February 16. I had noticed the 'prize essay' in the Canadian Bookman when it appeared. I was not in any way distressed over the omission of names as there was the compensating value of being in such fine neglected company.
I appreciate more the esteem, with which I have been honoured from time to time by the Winnipeg Free Press, than that of any other half-dozen papers of Canada. The 'Free Press' is on our Victoria Common Room tables regularly and your literary evaluations and criticisms are read with an admiring interest. Keep it up.
