LAMONT

I thought it might be worth-while for those of us who have known George Santayana to some extent, or had some contact with him, to meet and talk; and I was very glad to be able to get Horace Kallen to join us for the evening. I came across this little book on Harvard the other day, College in a Yard, edited by Brooks Atkinson; and there's a paragraph in here by Horace about Santayana, just one paragraph, in which he says that after class at Harvard he used to walk out with Mr. Santayana, asking him questions, and that that very quickly built up into teas and drinks and so on. Well, this is really a very enticing passage, and it seems to me that we might carry on from there, Horace, and go back to Harvard, where you were assistant to Santayana for several years, and see if you can recover some of those impressions.
