June 11th, 1920.
Dear Hathaway:

Just a line to tell you about
Carman. He was
to have come here this weak but owing to the illness of
McArthurI was obliged to ask him to postpone his visit until
later. He was in
Syracuse, seeing his doctor, and I had intended
meeting him there but I was obliged to push right through for
home without stopping over.

He wrote saying that it would suit him better to come
later as
Alan Sullivan is out west at present. It is not likely
that he will come before September. He claims to be in good
health and almost quite himself again.

I am indulging in one of my rushes of work just now. I
got an order for a book from Houghton Mifflin of
Boston and had
to rush it right through. I did fifteen chapters while in
York, making a complete book, which they accepted, but I asked
permission to enlarge it with ten chapters more. They agreed and
I am rushing these chapters through. Five of them are written and
I expect to have the other five completed in a few days. The
articles that have been appearing in the
Globe since I went to

New Yorkare parts of Chapters from this book.

Hope to see you in
Toronto before the end of the month.

Yours faithfully, Peter McArthur P.S. Will let you know as soon as I hear from
carman. It is
probable that he didn't get Bridle's letter as he has been
moving around quite a bit. P.M A.
