My Dear Mr. Seible1;

I know you are glad to hear of the flattering letter3 that calls me to New York4 and even though it delays that long deferred call for another week. I remember Tricky Dick5, however, and your trip to Chicago6, and am not too sanguine.

Now on the blessed Sabbath, I want you to make me out a list of all the periodicals that review poetry and to which I ought to make sure that the book7 is sent. Do you know Weldin's8 have not had one copy save the one they ordered for you? Several people have telephoned me about it. Badger9 says they have’nt ordered any. What do you suppose is the matter?

Here’s hoping that McClures10 mean good things.

Faithfully W. S. C.
