I'm glad that the book4 goes on selling5, even if it is but a modest sale. Do you know if Heinemann6 sold his thousand copies7, and if he will send me a small check one of these days?

I'm packing for the summer, at the moth-ball stage, employing no paper but tar-paper. Hope to go to Pittsburgh8 last of this week. Miss Lewis9 sails for Naples10 May 23 to visit old friends11 who live at Minori12, just below Ravello13.

Hastily W. S. C.
