[Banff, Alberta]
August 12, 1952

Dear Bill:

Vi and I have just landed at Banff. The Presentation takes place on Thursday the 14th. President Stewart of the University of Alberta presents the medal and since Ernest Macmillan and Fred Haines (music and painting respectively) find it impossible to get here, the duty of responding is on me. As the evening's programme is long including a 'Peter Pan' play by the dramatic section of the Banff School of Fine Arts, my few words (though they print it as a speech) will simply be an acknowledgement of the honour which I deeply appreciate.

Vi is here with me and both of us send our love to you and Sal and the family.

Affectionately,
Ned.
