FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1

I should think Mr. Boynton3's article4 in New York Evening Post5 of November 13 would be just the sort of general article you thought6 we might ask Mr. McClure7 to write for the Book News8. Can't you use it? Surely, if one were made of brass, with steel facings, one couldn't ask for a better "write–up."

Hastily W. S. Cather
