Forgive this rather
long delay. I have been awful busy with both the book
and the television project. A contract for the latter
will probably be signed soon. NBC has purchased the
story treatment. So I suppose that we shall begin
to try to dialogue it presently.
Meanwhile I have received
about a hundred favorable replies on "A.A. Comes of
Age." Like your own, they are extremely favorable.
I'm really delighted that you folks like the book
and can see so few changes.
I'm especially glad
to have that early review in the A.M.A. Journal. I
have ransacked our files, but couldn't find it. We
will try to put this in the Appendix of the book, provided
that Dr. Bauer of the A.M.A. will be all right. And
I'm sure he will; he is a grand chap.
I have heard from Dorothy
and, as you say, she likes the book very much, also. It
was good to know that Caroline approved the way Hank was
You are dead right about
1937 being the date we parted from the Oxford Groups. Somebody
else picked this up, too.
I'm also putting in
a little bit about Jackie Williams, how, in spite of the
fact he didn't make it, he did us a lot of good. Also,
the discription [sic] of his funeral and the great faith
that was felt by everybody there. It was a very affecting
incident which ought to be recorded.
Meanwhile, I've got to fly. A million thanks to you
