Dear Dr. Gregg:
At the Saturday meeting of the University Corporation's Prudential Committee, I found an opportunity to report upon your visit and our discussion. I suggested to the Committee that in the reallocation of funds for Psychiatry, it seemed to me desirable that Professor Miles' salary should be charged against the budget of the University Department of Psychology. The Committee approved the recommendation and I am clear this approval will be confirmed by the Corporation on November 6th. The Committee raised with me this point which was already in my mind as the result of something you suggested: that inasmuch as the grant for Psychiatry was originally to run until 1939 and as no question had been raised regarding the inclusion of Mr. Miles' salary as part of this grant, it might be proper to continue it as an item on the Psychiatry budget for 1938-39 and transfer it to the University Psychology budget in 1939. The members of the Prudential Committee felt that such an arrangement ought not to be regarded as a "token payment" by the University, but simply as a rearrangement justified by the hope of the original grant. I think the Corporation will approve my original suggestion. But it would certainly facilitate my presentation if I might make the transfer of the Miles' salary in 1939 instead of 1938. This opinion, I realize, is different from the one I gave you orally last week.
It was a great pleasure to see you here and we are deeply appreciative of the time and wisdom you gave us.
Faithfully yours,
Charles Seymour
