St. Johns,

Dear Bert:

I am afraid that it is impossible for me to get down to Newfoundland for your graduation ceremony. I appreciate the honour of the invitation very much indeed and I should look forward to a whole barrelful of reminiscences. It is quite possible that I might go down in late September. Calvert has been suggesting the idea for some time. But early June is, I fear, out of the question.

The very best to you,
E.J. Pratt
