On letterhead of "Battelle Memorial Institute," Bain arranges a date "to meet with the Chicago section once more. In these war times it is not always possible to keep appointments made so far ahead. As for title for the talk, how would this do? 'The Place of Philippine Mines in the Far Eastern Future' or 'Ores and Industry in the Philippines' or 'One Mining Man's experiences in the Philippines in War time'." Bold and attractive. It was while in the Philippines that Bain died. A handsome example. Bookseller Inventory # 20891
