2500 to McClurg RLS A. C. McCLURG & CO.
Chicago2 Dear Mr Scaife1:

Some of my old friends in Lincoln3 tried to get copies of the booklet4 sent out with The Song of the Lark5. The Lincoln Book Store and the book department of Miller & Paine's department store both reported that they had been unable to get the booklet, and had got no window posters6 with their order.

The fiction department of McClurg's tell me that they have never heard of either the booklet or poster.

Hastily W. S. Cather

address 1180 Murray Hill Ave7. Pittsburgh Pa8
