Dear Lord Addison,
I am very much obliged to you for your letter of the 27th inst.
Nothing has happened yet with regard to the Spanish Medical Aid Committee. The Committee membership has not been increased, but attendances recently have been much better.
I have not had an opportunity of speaking to Mrs. Brown yet, as I want to catch her in a good mood, and at two recent Committee meetings she has been in a most aggressive and irascible mood; but I will hold her to her promise to accept an important membership.
I do not think it will be wise to act on your lines until the change in membership takes place. Meanwhile, the Committee has been busy in itself, and have now appointed an Organising Sub-Committee with certain defined duties. This will have to come up for final confirmation at the Committee meeting next week.
The Committee is acting much more smoothly, but there is still an unbridgable amount of friction between the Secretary and the Organising Secretary.
Confidentially, I may tell you I am having a talk with Sir Walter Citrine and Mr. Middleton this afternoon about the S.M.A.C. and things generally. I will let you know confidentially how things develop.
