FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

I am so pleased3 that you like the Preface4. I do want it to please all Miss Jewett's5 friends. If Mary Jewett6 approves it, will you please have it put into type as soon as possible, so that you can let me have the proofs before I go West? That means, before May 15th.

And will you please send me three sets of proofs?

Hastily yours W. S. C.
