My dear Sir,

Your kind favor of Nov. 15th is just received. Please accept my best thanks for the same.

I hope, without doubt, to have the pleasure & great honor of meeting you next summer. I assure you that a personal acquaintance on my part would be most highly esteemed.

Your “über Schurri murri n. s. w. [sic]“1 never reached me. I should be delighted to have it, if you still have extra copies. Such writing as yours is what we need extremely in America & I assure you that you are doing a fine missionary labor, not only for Europe but America.

I am looking forward with great pleasure to your “2 which I shall gladly notice. |2| We are now at work on the first number of “Modern Language Notes”,3 a monthly publication in which we shall be able to make all such matters as these known extensively among our colleagues in the United States.

I am now at work on my second article on the Canadian Language,4 where I treat the strong external influences (social, religious + civil) that had a tendency to produce a homogenous speech in that country.

I regret, my dear Sir, to hear that you are not very well. I have also been a great sufferer from neurasthenia, but fortunately now am much better from the liberal use of cold baths, the only thing that |3| has ever helped me much.

Yours very sincerely,
A. M. Elliott

Prof. H. Schuchardt –
