Dear Sterling:—

Had a bully time at Lincoln on the 18th when they pulled off the official "coronation". I spoke twice and read twice. I've had more than one enthusiastic audience, but I never before experienced so much enthusiasm. It rather staggered me. Just before they took me to the K. C. sleper ​, a committee from the University waited on me and asked if I would care to live in Lincoln for a suitable salary without duties. Have been assured since that the thing is certain to be done.

This has been a rather spectacular business, but it has certainly been of great value to the work I'm doing — which was the purpose of the promoters.

I'm pretty sure that I shall see you in October or November if you're still among the living and still care as much for me — or half as much — as I do for you.

Affectionately always,
