Dear Herbert:

Thanks for your note today. I am putting in your Hymn in the issue appearing early April. I shall send you galley proof. Do you wish the poem asterisked to imply that it is out of the prize competition? I do not think I brought this point to your attention last January. It is at your own option. Willyou let me know about it soon?

Do not bother too much about my Queen's contributions. Tastes vary a lot, and if there is much disagreement don't try to force them through. I don't care as I realize how much acceptance depends upon individual requirements etc.

That Ottawa plan looks good to me but I can't say yet what I shall do. I voted for Raymond & got several other votes for him.

Affectionately
Ned
