Thursday a.m. [22 June 1945] †
I am getting a lot of information here a necessary prelude to the Halifax trip. Tonight Pelham & Harry are putting on a dinner at the Rideau Club and tomorrow I shall start off for the East.
I wrote a letter to Ellen Elliott before I left for Toronto and today she sent a telegram saying that Macmillans are eager to publish They Are Returning as a brochure this fall. She is writing to me at Halifax. I am not so sure of a book publication as the poem is so short. Its timeliness is a great feature; however, I feel that the presentation of it should be modest. We shall see what developments take place. The CBC will, I think, repeat, this time with proper announcement.
