BurnsSociety of The City of New York

Hi, Jim,
Thank you very much for making the trip to be with us, and for delivering a wonderful 'Immortal Memory'. I hope you are safely back home with time for a nap before your engagement this evening. I am sorry that the weather did not fully cooperate and trust the dislocation did not impact your plans too badly.
With all due respect, we are relieved that the weather happened when it did, and not last Thursday when you were coming here. That would have been disastrous!!.
I have expressed our appreciation to Murdo for having recommended you to Burns Society. Murdo has been a god-send to us in our efforts to identify and bring, like you, high calibre speakers to address our members.
When you have a moment, if you could please send through to me and/ or Ken the Falkirk Herald article. I am sure Ken will want to respond to it and confirm how successful your visit with us was, in spite of the disruption.
Good luck tonight.
With all of our very best wishes, and a hope that our paths will cross again,
 Professor Paul Freathy, President, Alloa Burns Club

"One of the most inspiring and poignant Immortal Memories I have ever been fortunate enough to hear.  The standing ovation at the end was a testimony to its contemporary relevance and most richly deserved."   


Scott Black FWB. Edinburgh

Many thanks for providing the Immortal Memory at the FWB Burns Supper last night – the response from our guests has been fantastic. Many have commented on your obvious passion and enthusiasm for Burns as well as your excellent delivery of what was a very thoughtful and thoroughly interesting Immortal Memory. Regards Scott.
