Appin,
Jan. 15, 1921.
Dear Hathaway:

I apologize. But perhaps you will forgive me
when I tell that your letter came when I couldn't do anything
to make the arrangements you wished. Then I was sick a—bed
for some weeks and when I got around your letter was lost
among over five hundred other letters that had come in.

However,
Carman has written to say that he is going to be
with you on
Feb. 5th. He has asked me to arrange a few
reading for him in other cities. I amcharging $100 each for
these readings and hope to net about $1000 for him. That
should be a help.

I am swinging out on a lecture tour myself and will be
passing through
Toronto soon. Hope to see you.

As ever,
Peter McArthur
