My dear Miss Addams,
In answer to your note of May 13, may I say that we shall be perfectly willing and glad to have you use any of the material of your Merrick Lecture in any other useful way that you wish? If you choose to make any reference to the lectures that will be very pleasant, but please feel entirely free to do as you think wise.
