Paul Reynolds4 can sell almost anything5, I imagine. He sold the awkward 15,000 word story6 I told you of, within a week after I sent it to him, for six hundred dollars, the story to be published in one number. I think I will let him manage the serial end of things for me after this.
I am on my way to Taos New Mexico7, and the Santa Clara pueblos and the Black Mesa. I'm a dog-in-the-manger, but I hope you wont let anyone else write a book about the South West8 for you. I'll simply have to do it in the end—it will do itself, indeed. Meanwhile I'm rather absorbed in another notion. You will probably hear about it later.
It's glorious to be in the West again.Yours W. S. C.
