I think you did a grand job on me in the booklet4, and the poster5 delights me. Thank you for the copy of the book6. I am thoroughly pleased with all the mechanical detail of it; cover, jacket, and typography. And I think the text looks interesting.
I have the most wonderful and glorious photographs of the Cliff Dweller ruins on
Mesa Verde7, the jewels of the
Denver and Rio Grande Railroad Collection, furnished me by the general Traffic Manager8, who was of great
assistance to me in many ways. I also have a hundred splendid photographs of the
wonderful Taos9 region and all the Rio
Grande pueblos about Espanola10, near
Santa Fé11. Do you still want a book on the Southwest12? I think I could
do a good one now. Next summer we might induce the Santa Fé railroad to furnish some
transportation, in which case I could run about to some of the more distant places
in Arizona13 and finish the whole thing off, giving the story of the Santa Fé Trail along
with the rest. It would be the only reasonably good book on that country ever done.
Earnest Pixiotto14 was down there doing a
book15 for Scribners, and he stayed
and at the richest places and merely rode through
the others in a motor. He's a charming man, but he knows nothing at all about the
country. Miss Lewis16 and I met several old
friends in the artist colony at Taos, among them Herbert
Dunton17 and Blumenschein18.
send the copies of "The Song of the Lark" due me to me at 1180 Murray Hill Ave.19
If you can send me thirty copies of the booklet and fifteen
copies of the posters, I can place them to good advantage, and please
send them to me at Red Cloud2.
