Dear Mr. Clark:

The matter of the letters seems to me to be very sim-
ple. I want the clearance paper to which I am entitled after
years of faithful work. Dr. Jordan wants the letters to which
he is entitled. I am willing enough to give up the letters if
I have the clearance paper. I can conceive of no reason why
he should object to giving me the clearance paper.

The most valuable clearance paper to me is not an estimate
of my work addressed to me but an estimate of it addressed to the
personage I have been serving these years.

Is there any reason, then, why I should not receive tomor-
row a letter like that on the enclosed sheet?

I should return at once letter dated May 21, and May 26.

I know nothing of any carbon copy of the Eliot letter. If
I find such a letter I shall let you know. I know of no reason
which I should not return it. I have a letter received from
Pres. Eliot which I shall, of course, return when I get back to

I can only add that I shall keep no copies of any letters

Please understand that this has nothing to do with the
check episode.

Sincerely yours,

(Signed) Edward A Ross.
