Dear Miss Sabin,
I have just received a second copy of your splendid monograph on your model of the brain. But I have no answer to the question
I put Dr. Claribel Cowe, namely, whether you would be willing to accept for the four summer months the position as assistant
in the Neurological Dispensary clinic at the Presbyterian Hospital in New York. I do not think that any salary goes with the
place, but the medical opportunity is really quite fine. Please let me know at once.
