Dear Mr Heinemann,

I write to give you cordial thanks for your note - The little part I played in this "chapter" was so very small (Also where I was acting in behalf of my principals) that my name has no right to appear at all[.] Your decision is certainly the proper one.

Yours very truly

D. C. Thomson

W. Heinemann Esq
J McN Whistler Esq
