With regard to the decoration of my book7, I think
Benda8 might be able to do it. His
half-tone illustrations are rather too mannered, but he used to do good head9 and
tailpieces10, and he knows the material.
I will try to have a talk with him and let you know about it later. The samples of
binding I will return soon, naming a first and second choice. Within the next four
weeks I shall know whether this story is going to come together in time for fall
publication or not. I think it will.
I hear from a bookseller in Oxford Junction,
Iowa11, that he has had several orders for "O
Pioneers!"12 and has been utterly unable to fill them. Will you please have
a notice to the effect that there is a new
printing of the book to; Mr. Arthur Grimwood13,
Oxford J Junction, Iowa.
Isn't there a statement of sales due me sometime in April?—31st April
If I can't get better reports of "Green Mansions"14 than you did, I am afraid I shall have to send you some candy15.Faithfully Willa S. Cather HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY
