April 12, 1943
I am enclosing a letter from Hébert sent through Leo Cox. This is only one of the several euconiums on your translation. I know Hébert. He is an author of some distinction. I also got a very warm note from Mrs. Mary Colman of Vancover who thinks your renderings exquisite. I do wish you had time to do more critical work. A.J.M. Smith was here with me last week and he spoke most cordially of you. So do they all. I hope the gods will land you in Toronto some day for a steady job. We lost E.K. Brown & Louis Mackay and Bert Davis. It's too bad.
I am sending a copy to Sylvestre.
Give my kind regards to Mrs C. And to Billy Fox. He is a close friend.
The Brébeuf radio symphony is dated for Sept. 26, C.B.C. giving a one hour's program. Healy Willan musical composer.
Will you return Leo Cox's letter & Hébert's? I need them for my files.
Sylvestre's copy is complimentary of course.
