Dear Mr Finney,1

This is good news: Mrs Finney and yourself were so kind to us at Ann Arbor, our evening with you is one of our happiest recollections of America.
It will give me great pleasure to introduce you to any composers whom I know, and whom you want to know.
Yours sincerely

Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you - & a composers party shall be laid on.
