D O C U M E N T S 2 3 4 , 2 3 5 J U N E J U LY 1 9 2 8 2 3 1 234. To Gilbert Murray [1] 30 June 1928 Dear Mr. Gilbert Murray, Thank you very much for your friendly and witty words. Unfortunately, my ill- ness is ridiculously stout and grand in comparison with a mere committee- illness.[2] I wish that under your leadership the committee might succeed in definitively securing a few results.[3] What especially depressed me last year was the decision to maintain official relationships with only one national committee in each country.

In the meantime, warm regards to you and to Rudilsium[1] from your Albert
