my dear Pollard:

1 duly received your letter of December 5th and
delayed answering until I should hear from Winship. who is
not a prompt ccrrceponéent.

I note all you say about the Amcrican Advisory
Comcittee. and have already communicated with Professors
Schofield and Webster, and the Universities of Nebraska
and Washington. I feel sure they will come in for 1917 as
well as 1918.

I see no objection to Winship taking care of all
American orders for the Society's publications and think a
remittance direct to Grovee would be better than having the
money oent through me. I greatly prefer only to collect the
annual dues.

lour notice is the first intimation I have had of
Carleton BrOWn's loss. I knew his wife was ill, and that he
had changed his nocitot on that account.

I shall submit the names of all candidates to the
other members of the Committee, but as applicants are generally
very well known. even in this country. I think we will have
no difficulty in passing upon them.

I am curious to see how many of Bullen'c victims
renew for this year. his enthusiaom for the Society knew
no bounds.

Our English nails are so irregular that I suppose
the delay in receiving Eosanquet'a and Duff's books must be
laid at that door. but I note you are sending them in bulk
instead of by mail.

1 saw by the papers that Sir William Coler’o son
had died. and mourn with you all for the great oacrifices and
lueoes you are sustaining. Alas! our own American boys
are beginning to giVQ their lives for the great cause. 80
for, none of my personal friendo have been bereoced, I know
it is only a question of time until I shall be called to the
house of mourning.

Our little city of summit with loss than ten thousand
has contributed three hundred and seventy-three men under the
volunteer system, out about forty by conscription.

Your friend, Miss Morris, has taken up dancing as
a cure for all evils! I suppose Mrs. Pollard lo watching tr


 the suffrage victories with Jubiletion. If I ever get to Lon~
don, I shall be afraid to play golf for fear the caddies will
be middle-aged women.

Under another cover I am mailing you a book by Ham~
lin Garland, one of our middle~agod literary men, entitled
"A Son of the Middle Border”. It so fully reflects American
pioneer life and is written in such an excellent spirit and
with so much perception. that I feel sure you and Mrs. Pollard
will enjoy reading it. fiooxer T. Washington’s "Up from
Slavery", fiery Antin's "Tue Land of Promise". Jacob Riis‘ “The
making of an American”. and the book in question, will help
you better to uneorstan‘ the'melting pot'which is so often men-
tloned, them all the lectures and tueorles you could possibly
near expounded.

Winning you and Mrs. Pollard a Happy New Year, I

Yours very truly.
