Dear Miss Lowell1:

The article on Harden4 arrived this morning and I took it up with Mr. McClure5 at once. We find it interesting but too slight and short for our use. Mr. McClure, I find, has already ordered6 a comprehensive study of Harden and his methods and purposes from Mr. William Archer7, the English critic. I am pleased and grateful that you should have thought of us in this connection and have given me an opportunity to examine the manuscript.

Very cordially yours, Willa Sibert Cather Miss Amy Lowell, Heath Street, Brookline8, Mass.
