Dear Sir:

I wonder why you want any opinion from contemporary writers on the Bible5 as Literature. Surely the great period of English Literature immediately followed upon the translations of the Bible into English, -- incidental translations which came with the early low church sects, and culminated in finally the great translation under James I6.

Respectfully yours, Willa Cather
