⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Knopf1:

Since Miss Lane3 seems so injured in tone, I guess we'll have to let her see it4 again5. Will you please send the galleys6 over to her by boy on Monday, and I will have the manuscript part sent to her on the same day. I've asked her to return it in one week.

It's a bother, but it won't put me behind, as I'll race on with the proofs.

Hastily W. S. C.
