Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

The new5 jacket6 satisfies me absolutely. It is exactly my notion of what a jacket ought to be. The quotation marked "Detroit Saturday Night" ought to be "Toronto Saturday Night,"7 however. I met the man who wrote the review last night, and he will be sad to have his paper put in the wrong town, I fear.

I wont leave here until the last week of July. Meanwhile, Miss Lewis8 is hunting for an apartment in New York. I shall be at the Shattuck Inn9, Jaffrey10, all of August. Just now I am working hard and do not want to stop until I have to.

W. S. C.
