Wm M SloaneSTANWORTHPRINCETON, N.J. July 13, 1910Dear Mr. MuirThis acknowledges with hearty thank your kind contribution of ten dollars to the expenses of the American Academy of Arts and Letters for the current year.We have finally secured the [New?] Theatre in New York for our meetings on Dc. 8 & 9. Is it at all possible for you to attend, I earnestly hope so and the Executive committee would be gratified more than you are likely to think of you could come and send a paper. I have been commissioned to make the request and sincerely hope you can answer affirmatively. Even if you cannot come I hope you will send one of your studies to 04832

be read by another. Reading at our meeting and publication in the proceedings does not interfere with any other arrangement for publication you would care to make.Very sincerely yoursWm. M. Sloane
