FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

The two sentences3 about Mrs. Langtry4 and Albert Edward5 can simply be cut out6, and the following sentence can begin "Ray deposited these pictures" etc, instead of "He deposited" etc. I shall be glad if Murray7 takes the book8.

About your suggestion9 for the Book News Monthly10 I shall write you tomorrow, when my trunks are unpacked and my head clears, and when I hope to have a better implement than a quill pen.

Hastily Willa Cather
