I have not joined the Harvard Law School Alumni Association, but I received a notice of their meeting, and a request that I should attend. I do not exactly know what my status is in regard to the Association. Or whether they admit everybody who has ever attended a lecture or lectures at the School. If so, I should be happy to join in your Association while I am in Washington. I hope to be in Massachusetts about Christmas, and I will ascertain what relation those who have attended the school, and have not received a degree, bear to the Association.
