My dear President Atwood:-

You ocn imagine bow happy I am under the present
oonditions.rCount Teleki wrote a lovely letter in whioh he
explained that after careful consideration he beoea oono
vinoed that it wvul'd serve the purpose better if the Univer/'
sity as ouch would extend the invitation to ma than a semi-
private invitation from him offering a position with the
Gog.raphio Irstitute o.f the University. Be informed me that
the dean of the Eoonomlio Faculty the Reotor of the Unlversity
and even the I8$etSzrfEa ut. education were favorably Im-
pressed by hii proposal thus By oase was duly approved by
the University Authoritles and by the Minister of Eduoation.
The letter of Inv!totlon by the Dean, by force of its lovely
wording made me even happier thnn the letter of appointment
by the Reotor, First thinr nffter I received them I showed them
to IEollln he likeCd their too* In his letter Teleki asked me to
give you his k1biest regards4
At tLeo universityty I shall give ito leotures por week
on th., Eioonomlo Geogrephy of North ericaic, two on aubtroploal
agriculture, and probably one on the United :it toes, more from
the sooial and.. political point of view with reference ft the
Roosevelt Reoo'very program. Besides these I Ohallholp in. the
direction of the intenmediste and progressive eminarS,
Count.Teleki was just as nice as he bould be, He tried
his best to arrange everything i the nost satlsi'rctory meaner.
And he suneeded beautifully, he even "squtee-ed" out a decent
salary whieh as you know Is hard to do in E.rope. So everything
worked out perfectly almost too perfectly to be true. ae are
leaving here on the first of June for Alabana and hence we
start out ior New Xork on the l7th or 18th of August for New Y
York. I think we shall be in Budapeat on the first of September.
I can assure you I am very proud of the fact that I
shall represent Clark at the Teroentenary of the Paamany Peter
University, This is not the same institution as ours
We are all well and Rosemary is sweeter from day to
day. We are so happy with her, I hope you are well& Please
give our kindest regards to Mrs. Atwood.

April .897, 1938
