Your letter entitled "Whole-Time Clinical Professors" reached me a few weeks ago. I need not say that I have read
it with care. In fact, I have read it several times with care, and so have many others here. I'm not prepared to give
you an answer at the present time, nor do I think it necessary. I appreciate the interest you show in the matter, and everybody
who has read the letter must feel under obligation to you. I must confess that there are certain features in the proposed
new plan which I cannot get clear about. I am doing a good deal of thinking and trying to get light. Of course it is quite
possible that nothing will come of this movement.
Your note in regard to Sidney Ball is also received, and I shall be glad to see him and show him such attention as he may
be willing to accept.
