Dear Martin,

It was a great pleasure to have you in our home. Our only regrets were that the time was so short and that the rest of your family could not be with you.

We are hoping that before long you can make some such arrangements as we talked of here, so that you and your family can come to Boston for a period of rest, spiritual renewal and writing. If this were planned some weeks ahead we think we could arrange for you to live in the Danielson guest house in Wellesley where you could have privacy together and a minimum of disturbance. At the same time you would be within easy commuting distance of the libraries and other facilities of the city.

Dean Muelder and I have talked together about this and we are confident that we could find means of relieving you of the financial burden of such an arrangement, if you can work out a scheme for the handling of your responsibilities in Montgomery for a time. Let us know when you see your way clear to plan dates and other details.

Your address in Boston was stirring and helpful to the causes which you so ably represent.

Our concerns and prayers will be with you through the difficult days ahead.

Fraternally yours,
[signed] Harold
