Won't you please try to get a statement from Walpole4 about my books that you can use? If you5 could see him yourself
and get him to say why he likes them it would
surely be worthwhile. He will probably be in Boston6. This is the kind of thing that Knopf7 would follow up with enthusiasm, but
I can't ask him to go in for this sort of publicity without promising my next book8. Please don't send
anybody to Walpole who will try to make him utter trade bromides; no use
trying to make him say that my books are "to be
GARAGE LIVERY ELEVATION 1200 FEET
OPEN FIRES The Shattuck Inn
AT THE FOOT OF MONADNICK MOUNTAIN
OPEN ALL THE YEAR
JAFFREY, N.H. read and enjoyed and read again." If he can't be got to say anything more interesting than that, better not quote him. Of course he would not confine himself to the safe bromide unless that was what your representative wanted him to utter.
I'm leaving here2 on Friday, and will be in New York9 on Monday.Yours Willa S. C.
