October 23, 1937

Dear Dr. Grover,

Thanks for your letter that was forwarded to me through M~r.
Lippincott. I save all of your letteray.for each one contains some vital
help for me. I owe so much to you.

Yes, indeed, I am coming home for the wninter."In fact I did
not intend to stop when I landed. I planned to send everything I had on
by freight and follow on immediately. But I am to speak at the BOOK FAIR
in Boston on N\ov. 8, anc' at Radio City BOOK FAIR Nov. 1.5. So Mlr. Lip-
pincott asked me to stay north for that. I am bringing all my furniture
with me this time. I want peace and quiet to sit down and tryr to 10 rn
how to write in truth. I have always been too hurried before.

M~y very best to the rest of the Grover family.You must have
had extraordinary parents tp produce so muvb talent in one family.

I have .just received a card this morning from Carl VanVechten
saying that he saw my name in the new edition. of WH~O'S WHiO. I must look
to see as soon as I have time to get around to it.

My regards to Mlrs. Thompson. I brought both of you something
from Haiti.
I ar under'the impression that one can get only two fellow-
ships from the Guggenheim.But I have so much material now, that I can
do about three books without stopping to search for more,

Looking forward to seeing you soon, I am


Yours sincerely,
