Yes4, certainly Mrs. Norris5 is a lady! I got Mr. White's6
books7 off today. I didn't see8 the Tribune9
article10 until Friday afternoon, when Mr. and Mrs. Boni11 and Liveright12 and several others from
CollirsColliers13 and the Ladies' Home14 arrived with copies of it for the usual Friday
Please give Mr. Linscott15 the enclosed photograph16, and tell
him that while it is not a very late one, it is rather the best likeness I
have, and I would rather use it than a more recent one not so good. I think
I can get a new one before the winter is over, but it won't be any better
than this. You used this only in connection with
"O Pioneers!"17 and it didn't get
very far; people will have forgotten it.
If Mrs. Austin18 is really using her 80-horse power brain on me19, oughtn't she to have "The Troll Garden"20? The ordinary reviewer does not matter much, but she is a very thorough person, and if she is going to put her valuable time on me, she ought to have all the data. Please let me know if you sent her that. If not, I'll send you one of my three remaining copies for her. I had rather you forwarded it to her, because she will feel freer if she does not know that I am aware of her enterprize. She may lose her interest and want to drop the subject, you know.Faithfully yours W. S. C.
