Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

Would you like4
The Mayflower Edition
of
Sarah Orne Jewett's Best Stories5,

and you might quote on the jacket the last paragraph6 of Charles Miner Thompson's7 Atlantic8 article9, in which he likens Miss Jewett's work to the Mayflower. This is merely a suggestion.

Yours W. S. C.
