Dear Mr. McClure1:

I am held up about illustrations3 for the first article4. That can't be put off any longer, and with the rush at the office to get out Harpers Weekly5 with no increase in the office force, there is no one to do it but me. I have not used all my Boston6 material, so will not lose much time. Doubt whether I can go to Lakewood7 before Thursday. Will write you again.

Hastily W. S. C.
