Sept. 3, 1943

My dear Lorne:

Here is a short statement regarding A.J.M. Smith which you are at liberty to use. Just keep the signature E.J. Pratt, without Professor or Dr or any frills.

I hear that you had a good holiday. May the beneficial effects last long.

Ned Pratt

Pierce had accepted Smith's News of the Phoenix for publication by Ryerson. Pratt had written a short publicity 'blurb.' (See the note to 'Phoenix' in the letter to Smith, 1 June 1943.)
