Dear Esther and Joshua -
Sorry to have delayed until now writing to thank you for looking after me so well in Madison. The rest of the trip was equally long, and I had a very good time with Jimmy et al. in Urbana and the Novicks in Chicago. The SAB program committee meeting was a pain in the neck, however; we had a bang-up fight with the local committee in Chicago over banquet arrangements. Said committee, composed of middle-aged physicians, had tentatively arranged to take the Marine Room at the Hotel with exclusive rights to Rudee Vallee and his floor show, tickets $7 per person and a guaranteed[SIC] minimum attendance of 800. I hope the Society can get out from under this, but am not sure.
The Controllers office is not sure (as of Monday) whether your income tax statement has already been sent out, so I asked them to check up and airmail it to you if not already taken care of. Let me know if it doesn't turn up within the next week.
You have been scooped by Stephen Potter, I think : he has a new book out in "Lifemanship".
Once again many thanks and best wishes
