Notes:
Transcription reads: "March 4, 1934. Dear Penfield, Your kind letter reaches me here - where I am invalided from a severe attack of rheumatism which took me last October. It is delightful to (?) that your new Institute will be ready (?) opening next October. I have so often had pleasure in learning of your fine success & rejoiced in knowing how greatly you are valued & admired by colleagues & pupil in McGill. I should have enjoyed nothing better than visiting Montreal for the opening & be (?) Institute to all you have done; but my obstinate enemy (?) crippling me as it does. Forbids any hope of my being able to do so. The loss is mine, not yours or the ceremony's. I am very sorry indeed that Helen has been ill. My love & best rememberances to her, please. She has such splendid spirit. It would have been a joy indeed to see her & thank you both for the generous hospitality. I wish I could have availed myself of it. With every good wish, Yours sincerely, C.S. Sherrington."
