5/21/19 Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Can you4 send me about 25 of those5 reprints6 from the Chicago News7?

I wonder whether Houghton Mifflin will be generous enough to put these as folders8 in a number of their new publications? I see that Mr. Knopf9 has put a similar article on Hergesheimer10, but also mentioning "Antonia11," in several of his new publications.

Yes, I'll inflict you with my long letter12 very soon now.

Faithfully yours W. S. C.
