Dear Mr Wiles:

I thought 'In Quest of the Humanities' might be a suitable title for the address. I should prefer not to have the address mimeographed and distributed for I shall be preparing a speech not an article – two distinct things from my point of view. To do the second would require more time than I have at my disposal with the pressure of work ahead. Besides, the address which I shall prepare for the H.A. may be given elsewhere after the May meeting and I should like to keep myself free for that purpose. I could, however, send Dr Tracy a synopsis of the argument if he could use it in a report.

Yours sincerely,
E.J. Pratt
