My dear Mr. Atkins:

Your letter of July 29th has been received and I am exceedingly sorry that absence from the city prevented me from making an earlier acknowledgment.

I note with genuine interest the attractive invitation which you have extended to me to address the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences during the coming fall or winter, and I wish to assure you that I more than appreciate your thought of me in this connection. I should like very much indeed to participate in one of your meetings but just at present my calendar is so full that it is impossible for me to make any additional engagements of this kind. You may be sure, however, that I shall be pleased to bear your invitation in mind in the hope that it will be possible for me to accept it later on.

With hearty thanks for your generous interest, I am,

Sincerely yours,

Cary T. Grayson
