June 19, 19U6. Mr. Harry C. b u m a , Sditor, The Great lakes Banker, 105 West Monroe Street, Chicago, Illinois, Dear Mr, Bausaan; It was 00at disooaoerting to me to di soover that your May issus contains a Tory stuoh garbled report of ay en tirely impromptu talk at the luncheon in St, Louis on May 2 of the Illinois Bankers Association, As I was Merely passing through St. Louis and had not expected to attend the luncheon or to be called upon to speak, this had to be a purely extemporaneous discussion of what is, on the uhole, a pretty technical subject* There fore, I am not blamiag the stenographer idio transcribed it and who m s doubtless unfamiliar with the subject mtter, or m I defending my own exposition, Ths point I wanted to m k e is that I did not know this m s to appear in print and if I had known it I would have wished to have an opportun ity to 90 ewer it and edit it so that it would at least m k e ordinary sense. In the garbled form in idiioh it ap pears, it is in m a y places unintelligent and unintellig ible, There is nothing that esa bo done about it at this late date, 1 felt I should let you know that I regret very much that I was not given an opportunity to go orer It aad m k e the necessary revisions before it was printed. Sincerely yours. (S ign ed ) M S M e s M, 8 , Eccles, P.S. I would appreciate it iJ^ymTwould publish this letter in your next issue. 1 n This article is protected by copyright and has been removed.
