Dear old Arthur:
Although I was on the C.P.R. Sunday when your 'critical speaking' was on the air, I had no less than four letters today when I arrived at the Cascade Hotel. All of the correspondents spoke enthusiastically of your 'matter' and delivery. One former student took notes by shorthand and gave me extracts.
I am indeed grateful to you for your publicity and affectionate estimate of the last book. Indeed, I have had more fervently appreciative reviews through Canada on the Spike than I have ever had all my life, but the most valued is that of your dear self.
I am at Banff to receive the University of Alberta medal on Thursday night. Since Sir Ernest MacMillan and Fred Haines are away I have to make the acknowledgement. I wish you were here to enjoy the Banff scenery. Vi is here and wishes to send her love to you & family.
Will be back in Toronto by the 23rd of August.
