BUEL,ASSISTANT EDITOR.Mrs.J.M.-2-let it stand in the way of acceptance of such a compliment which is, in fact, a compliment to all those of us who have been associated with him. Harvard Commencement is an inspiring occasion and brings out the best there is in one. I am expecting a telegram from Mr. Muir in reply to my telegram. Professor Sargent is very much interested in having him come, and so am I and all of his friends at "The Century." As soon as I ascertain the exact date of Commencement I will let him know. It is along about the twenty-second or twenty-fourth of June I believe.With kindest remembrances to you and the young ladies, as they must now be, I am, indeed,Very sincerely yours,P.S.We had a little dinner at our house about a month ago,at which there were present Mr. Padarewski, Miss Szumowska, [illegble]Mr. and Mrs. Robert Underwood Janowski and their daughter, Agnes Janowski. Mr. Teslarowski also came in after dinner, and we had a Polish evening of it.
