November 25, 1983

Dear Don,

Thank you for the dinner. It was knockout,
especially that corned beef, cut thick as
pork chops!

I woke up the next day thinking I’d been a
bit hard on old Colby-Sawyer. It’s not the college’s
fault, after all, if that article in US News has
its share of hype. I too hope things work out for
the place. And I hope for various reasons I won’t
be there soon.

You are both great to ask me over with the
book. Probably it will come on Tuesday, but I
will call before I come.



A note from McNair about this letter:  The US News and World Report article ranked Colby-Sawyer among the top colleges of its class in the Northeast. Thus, the mention of “hype.”
