F.G. Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

Thank you for the paragraph4 from Mrs. Austin's5 letter. I would rather have her approval than most. I suppose you've seen6 Mencken's7 article8 in the "Smart Set."9 I hope you can convince some English publisher10 that he wants the book11.

I've had a long letter from Elsie Sergeant.12 She is now on crutches and expects to be out of the hospital sometime in March.

Faithfully W. S. C.
