Notes:
The note transcription reads: "Dr. Alan Gregg: Rockef. F. N.Y.C. 61 Broadway, Sept 22, 1931, Dear Dr. G. You may remember that at the time of our conversation in New York you planned to come to Montreal this autumn. I have to make a short trip to see my mother in California and if you will tell me the probable time of your arrival I want very much to arrange to be there at that time. There is a movement on foot at McGill to expand the work in Neurology. I hope you will be able to come up and tell us what you think of the situation and whether the Foundation is likely to care to help with it."
