⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Knopf1:

I've been wondering whether there would be any way of tying the advertising3 up with the Kipling4 controversy5—which is still going on, it seems.

I was much cheered by the editorial6 in yesterday's Saturday Review7, and I am still proudly admiring the handsome8 volume9 you brought me.

Faithfully W. S. C.ather
