Dear Dr Dvořák,
The times have been hard during the last three years, but they are looking better and with the election of the republican president - which now seems assured - the country will again be prosperous and we can get the support for our educational work which will enable us to proceed on a scale worthy of the country and of you. Now, can we not come to an agreement by which you will resume the directorship of the National Conservatory of Music? The good deed sown by you during your stay with us, has borne fruit and the musical feeling in America is fast developing and under truly great direction, great results must follow.
Will you not come and direct this evolution? You have already earned the respect, admiration and love of the musical masses in this country and no one can occupy the field as you can. To direct the musical development of such a Nation as ours, should appeal to such a genius as you are. Will you not cable me on receipt of this yes - and write me, as per instructions in letter from Mr. Kovařík.
In the meantime, believe me - with kindest remembrances to Mrs. Dvořák and the children.
Yours very sincerely,
Jeanette M Thurber
