Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

That3 photograph4 was published5 in the Wanamaker Book News6, a few months after the publication of "The Song of the Lark."7 Do, please, try to get it back for me!

The first edition of "The Bright Medusa"8, 3500 copies, is completely sold out, and the second edition of the same number will be out today; which is doing very well for a book of short stories, I think.

Faithfully yours W. S. C.
