EDITORIAL ROOMS Dear Mr. Ferrero1:-

Mr. McClure4 is very anxious to know whether we could not arrange with you to publish several of the lectures which you have delivered in this country with such success. I see that Putnam's5 are to publish two of these, and Mr. McClure thinks that among the remaining six there would be probably two, or at least one, which would be available for us. Would it be possible for you to call at the office some time next week and talk the matter over with us?

Very cordially yours, Willa Sibert Cather Mr. Guglielmo Ferrero, Hotel Astor, New York City2.
