My dear Mr. Baker: --
I was quite ill this summer and am making rather slow recovery so that I am not at the moment making any speaking engagements outside Chicago, but I hope by the first of the year to be able to do some speaking in the East. May I write you then in regard to coming to Amherst.
I am sure I need not tell you that it would give me great pleasure to respond to any request of yours.
