Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Thank you4 for the proofs5 of the cuts6. I want one of them made over, please. The mistake is mine, so the cut makers may charge me with the extra plate if they wish. Please ask them7 to crop the drawing as on the enclosed proof, and re-make the cut so that the figure on horseback8 will be proportionally larger.

Faithfully yours W. S. C.ather SP
