Dear Clarence:-

I understand by the public prints that you are discoursing sweet eloquence here next Sunday evening. I am leaving the next morning for Northern Minnesota and it will be my last chance to see you for God knows how long. Can't you arrange to have a party with me after the debate -- we will have Burris Jenkins and Earl Blackman (Burris' assistant) along, if you would like.

Please let me know by wire, as soon as possible, so that I may plan for the party. I'll be down at the church to hear you and pick you up after the debate if you can make it.
