Dear Alan:--
Having been absent for a few weeks and then ill for a week, my reading of your diaries was somewhat delayed recently, so it was only a few days ago that I learned of the safe arrival of your son Michael. Please accept my heartiest congratulations, late though they are. I hope all has continued to go well.
I noted your reference to the Calvert system for teaching children at home. Several friends of ours have used it with very satisfactory results, and Mrs. Greene is now using it with our son [. . .]. She
is also much pleased with it. I think you would make no mistake in giving it a trial.
I want to express my gratitude for your diaries. Your accounts of visits to important places and your reports of conversations with people whose ideas are worth having, together with numerous bits of interesting information given out by the way, are very useful to me and keep me in closer touch than I could be otherwise with the outside world. I am sorry that I give nothing in return, but most of what I could report would interest you only remotely.
Let me commend J. B. Grant to you. He is an extraordinary person and of enormous value to us here. I rely a great deal on him.
Roger S. Greene
