My dear Lorne:

Thanks for your characteristically kind note. It would have been good to have seen you there, so we could have exchanged mephistophalean glances under twisted eyebrows.

Queen's has always been very hospitable to me. Imagine fifteen years of summer sessioning. No better place for golf, too.

The best
Ned.


mephistophalean glances
This is an old joke between them, dating back to when Pratt was writing The Witches' Brew. See the letter to Pierce, 23 May 1923.
