(copy of letter sent to Post)
Clark McAdams, P-D St. Louis
Dear Mr McAdams:

In your letter regarding replying to my request for a leave of absence, you asked that I suggest a substitute. On the supposition, which may be wrong, that no one on the staff would be free to take over the work, which requires I would suggest Dr. Julius T. House of New River State College, West Va., who edit for several years has edited & published "Present Day American Literature", one of the best of the independent magazines. Dr. House is a Chicago University man with a rich cultural background and with special training in Sociology. His general outlook is in perfect agreement with that which your editorial page makes your editorial page makes your editorial page a source of light.

With kind thought

Jno N
