Appin,
October 23rd 1920.
Dear Hathaway:

I got a letter from
Carman last
night. His address is
Lake Placid Club, Essex County, N.Y.
He claims to be in fine shape and this is confirmed by

Kennerley, who says he never saw him looking so well. But
I think that money would be a convenience to him just
now. He spoke of the need of going back to work in the advertising
agency where he had been employed — and of his dread of
doing routine work again. I wonder if we could arrange a
lecture tour for him next winter! I think half a dozen
lectures could be arranged in
Toronto,
Hamilton,
St Catherine's

Chatham,
Montreal,
Ottawa and perhaps some other places.
What do you think. He talks of visiting
Toronto but feels
lost without Sullivan there. Dont you think someone
would be glad to entertain him.


Kennerley suggests that
Carman would come up to
the farm in November if I asked him and I wrote
at once inviting him. When I hear from him I'll
drop you a line.

In the meantime I think a check would help him.

As ever
Peter McArthur
