Dear Gladys:
This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter of June 19 and to thank you for writing. I am leaving the city today to conduct a clinic in Virginia. When I return I plan to go to Chicago for the N.A.A.C.P. meeting. The first part of August I shall be in St. Louis to give the Annual Oration at the National Medical Association meeting and in between them the University, perhaps, would like me to teach a little Surgery. I do not see how I can possibly spend any time during this summer working on my life story. Having one's life story written when his professional life is just getting under way, I imagine, is something of a handicap for I feel that my life story as a physician has just had its preface completed and the rest is yet to come. If I should happen to be in New York I shall get in touch with you or Freddie or if she should happen to be in Washington, I would be glad to talk with her and see just what she has in mind. My own feeling is that she could spend her time more profitably.
It was good to hear from you. I hope it all goes well.
Sincerely yours,
Charles R. Drew, M.D.
Department of Surgery
