"Dear Professor Ginsberg,

you have probably heard the outcome of the move to establish a Chair in Sociology at this University. But I feel I must thank you, as I have done so often before, for the help you have been giving me by acting as my referee. We are well satisfied with this result ... And I myself am well satisfied with my Readership."
