SUBJECT:

Announcement of Your Changing Role

I~

Dear Henry:

I was most disappointed to receive your memorandum disagreeing with the contents of my communication to the Board of Trustees regarding your change in position. According to our discussions which we held on Thursday, May 26, and the notes which I made, we agreed that the announcement would state that you will no longer be the Director of Surgery by mutual agreement. Additionally, it was your intention to devote more time to the practice of surgery and research. I believe my memorandum very specifically spelled out this issue and used, in fact, your own wording.

In regard to your other letter concerning the provisions of our letter of agreement, please be assured that we will meet our obligations with respect to the establishment of the trust by June 30, 1977.

Lastly, I

have not received to date a . copy of my memorandum outlining the

.accommodations which we have agreed to

signed by you and I would appreciate

your forwarding this

signed copy to me as

soon as possible.

Cordially,
