Sir,

On the occasion of the fifth centenary of its foundation the University of Louvain wishes to attach itself more closely to those scholars whom it holds in particular esteem.

The academic Council would be greatly honoured if you would kindly accept the diploma of Doctor, honoris causa, of the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature.

I should be most obliged to you if you would let me know without delay whether we may expect this honour, and, in the mean time, believe me, dear sir,

Yours sincerely,
P. Ladeuze,
Rector of the University
