Huntington Wilson Esq.
March 17, 1918
My dear sir:
As I have just been called into active service by the Surgeon General it will be impossible for me to consider the question of assisting you in the very interesting and suggestive plan you have outlined.
The opportunity you have given for expressing my views on the subject of Education is a very attractive one, but unfortunately for me I must undertake work of quite a different character.
May I take the liberty of suggesting the names of Professor William H. Burnham of Clark University or Dr. C. Macfie Campbell of the Johns Hopkins University (The Henry Phipps Clinic) as possible contributors.
Please excuse my brief reply but I am leaving Princeton tomorrow and there are still many duties to be performed. My best wishes for your undertaking and thanking you for thinking of me in this connection.
Very truly yours,
