My dear Mr Ely
I am very much tempted to accept your kind invitation for the summer quarter. It will be the only way to get my book written if indeed it is even done. I do not know that I would have enough material for twelve lectures on that subject but perhaps we could broaden it out in the final title. Will you write me the last moment in which I could send it? [page 2] Mrs Kelley's book reads very well doesn't it and I am much impressed with the value of Mr Common's book. You must feel proud of all the good work you have made possible.
With cordial greetings to Mrs Ely I am Faithfully yours
