Dear Mrs MacLeod:

My subject will be 'Contemporary Canadian Poetry.'

Will you kindly let me know what time the lecture commences and how long it is supposed to last. I am planning for three-quarters of an hour if that would not be too much of a strain on the audience. As I intend writing it out I should like to have a desk or a lecture-stand on which to place a manuscript. Is such available?

It will be such a pleasure to meet my Montreal friends. I have a great admiration and love for Leo Cox. He is like a brother to me. So is Leslie Barnard.
