Dear Doctor Macfarlane:
In reply to your letter of September 28th, I have no desire to enter into discussions on the question of the desirability
of maintaining a medical school run by women. You asked me to serve on your committee and therefore I had to reply to your
letter that I did not find myself able to become a member of it. I do not wish to influence anyone either for or against
such a project.
