N. H. Pearson
Dear Alfred1;

Let us forget3 the Anthology4 until I get home5. I wrote Mr. Pearson6 that I would ask you to give his letter7 a second reading, but that I thought there were too many anthologies now, Without another being added to the list.

I’m leaving here2 on Monday the 20th, but will stop a few days8 in New England9 on the way. I will probably telephone you the 28th or 29th.

Hastily W. S. C.
