I am sending you today a bunch of the most important notices of our book4. You need not return them to me, but you must let
Irene5 see them. The one6 in the “Dial”7 is the
one I like best, because it was written by the most intelligent man8. He died a few weeks after this article was
printed, of influenza, and his death is a great loss to American letters. I enclose
a notice about him along with the reviews. I have had more than a hundred
letters about the book, from all sorts of people, and answering them has really been
a serious drain on my time. Mr. Edwin W.
Winter9, for many years president of the Missouri Pacific railroad,
after writing me two letters, came to
see see me to
tell me how much he liked the book, and now he often drops in on Friday and seems
like an old friend. From first to last this book has been a great pleasure and
satisfaction to me, but nothing pleases me quite so much as that you and father10 like it so well.
Did you get a copy of Durer’s11 rabbit picture12 I sent you some weeks ago? at Christmas time?
