This letter is from Mel Hurni to Peter Drucker. It discusses the theory building work that Drucker did for Hurni. Hurni explains adjustments he would like Drucker to make so that the examples will be more suitable to his purposes. One such correction is that Drucker states the answer before he states the problem. Hurni also mentions he will soon be leaving for M.I.T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) for several weeks and would like to see the next draft before his departure.
