[on Lord Beaverbrook letterhead]
This has surely been an interesting experience, coming to this back-woods community. A university with 1000 students, city of 25000, whole province perhaps 250,000, with little in the way of resources. They are excited by my visit, and are getting as much as possible out of it. I arrives at about 2 PM yesterday, and spoke on metals at 4:30, in the college hall, which is something like an oxford college hall, but with chairs installed. Then had dinner at the home of Professor Toole, the head of the chemistry department, with the four young men in the department, three wives, and another woman, who lives with the Tooles, and then spoke at a seminar - just chatting about what researches we are carrying on, while the students (I too) drank beer. I haven't seen anyone yet today. At 1 we are too [sic] have lunch here at the hotel, and tonight I speak on antibodies - rather, chemistry in medicine. All of the 20 doctors in town are expected to be there. Tomorrow noon I shall give a lecture to Professor Toole's class (they use my Gen. Chem.)
This is a wooded region, like the Pacific Northwest, but colder. Night before last was the coldest night for two years - 30° below zero in Campbellton when the train went through. It is about 0° F. here now.
I am all right - I have an extra pair of woolies on (Fred Ewing's), I wear my sweater, I've bought a pair of ear muffs, + Prof. Toole has lent me some big overshoes. I have plenty of blankets on my bed. Our train was over an hour late at Fredericton Junction, and missed the connecting local, so I came the 26 miles with the three other passengers in a taxi, over snow between the pines - for ten miles with no house or other structure along the road. A young fellow along said that he saw new Brunswick Christmas trees for sale in the states. He said "In the States some people use pine trees or cedar trees - but to me only a fir is a Christmas tree." he was a tough young laborer - and I was interested to hear him talk about the trees.
Kleiderer gave me a lederle preparation that, he says, suppresses cold sores excellently. Also it is good for poison oak, insect bites, and sunburn. It contains an anti-histaminic and a topical anesthetic.
Tomorrow night I take the train, reaching New York late Thursday. I'm afraid that I have to stay to talk at Carnegie Hall Monday night. I hope to be home with you Tuesday morning. Has your wrist got better? I hope so, and I hope that Peter is behaving. I love you, my darling girl.
Your own, Paddy.
