My Dear President

I wrote to you about ten days ago, in answer to a communication from Le Patourel[2] about the proposed Whistler Exbn[3] and asking you to let me know what you would wish done now.

As I have not heard from you, I am afraid [p. 2] my letter must have miscarried, although I have not had it returned.

I was sorry, as I wired, not to have been present last Monday at the Genl Meeting[4] but I only received the notification thereof that morning.

With best regards believe me
Sincerely Your's

W Ayerst Ingram.

J McNiel [sic] Whistler Eqr P R B A.
