Notes:
Transcription reads: "Sept. 23, 33. Dr. Wilder Penfield, Montreal Que. Dear Dr. Penfield - I was much interested in your new Institute and the care and artistic though you bestow upon exterior. I think your designs were pretty appropriate. - I just returned from my vacation in the Canadian Woods and shall be very long with the new classes for several weeks to come. To design a shield or bookplate is quite a little problem and I feel that i do not have the leisure at the present time to do the thing right. I did make a harsh sketch, which is in (?) your ideal. I enclosed it in this package with all the material you sent me. I am so sorry I did not know about your wish early in the summer. We might have worked out a dignified and artistic design. If you are not in a hurry about the bookplate, I shall be very glad to try my hand at it later in the year. If your institute should require the service of a first rate medical illustrator, I think I can recommend a splendid one. However, I do not wish to interfere with any of my former pupils, who (?) (?) illustrate in Montreal. With kindest regards. Yours most sincerely, Max Brödel. P.S. I enclose 2 sketches."
