Sept. 8, 1944

Dear Mrs MacLeod:

I was glad to hear from you again. I did not attend the meeting of the Canadian Authors' Association at Hamilton and consequently heard nothing of the proceedings.

People were much surprised at the election of Kennedy I understand.

I like your 'White Peacock.' It has an eerie note of 'faraway' romance. Did you submit it to the Canadian Poetry Magazine? I have nothing to do with the magazine now, having resigned two years ago, but I think it would snap it up. I have given up editorial and reviewing activities nearly altogether on account of pressure of work.

Give my best regards to your fine family.

Yours sincerely
E.J. Pratt

Actually he had only resigned as editor the previous year. See the letter to Watson Kirkconnell, 8 September 1943.
