Dear Miss Addams:
Survey Associates begins a new fiscal and publishing year -- our fifth -- on October 1st. Mr. [DeForest] plans a meeting of the Board later in the month when the year's statements will be before us. Will you be good enough to let me know what dates from October 20 to October 27 will be most convenient to you; and your choice as between a luncheon and a dinner meeting?
As this will be the important meeting of the fall in opening the year's work, we hope for a full attendance.
