Dear Joe

Just a note to say hello and to express my thanks belatedly for what you tried to do in the case of Ralph Stone. He has a one-year appointment to Southern Illinois and probably will be looking again this spring; so if a position should open up at Eastern Carolina you might keep us in mind.

Apparently the political situation in North Carolina was pretty good a few months ago. How is it now? Will Kennedy come through? What did you think of the great debate? I thought that Kennedy "clobbered" him.

We are all well, and I trust the same is true of you and family. We have had the excitement--and the work--this summer that comes from moving into a larger and better house.

Best regards,
