Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

I am spending the next ten days here with the Hambourgs3, after which I will return to Bank Street4. Have you seen the "Sun"5 notice6? I hope the business department will feel that they can advertise the book7 a little. No copies of the book to be had here yet. Tyrell Tyrrell8, the chief bookseller here, says his order has been in a long while.

Hastily W. S. C.

Please mail this "old monk"9 a copy of "Antonia." His monastery has considerable influence among American Slavs.
