701 Park Manor Apts Parkside Avenue Philadelphia (Pa) Dec. 27, 1938 Dear Friend, I hope you are well. I don't think you should take the trouble of coming to New York for me. I should come to Westport on some day that is convenient for you. Are you home on Sundays? May I come & spend a few hours with you on Sunday, January 8th? Or is a weekday more suitable? Please let me know. I can be there about 11.30 a.m. and stay a few hours. It will be a great pleasure to meet after so many years. I am happy to read your name in New York Times. I have been asked by Dr. Potter to speak for his "Humanist Society" in New York. Perhaps you know him. I had a letter from Mrs. Fremont > last week. She spoke of you. With best wishes for a happy & peaceful New Year, Yours fraternally Har Dayal
