Letter 76


New Canaan, Connecticut

3. December. 1928



My Dear Margaret:


I want very much two copies of my Sappho,1 and would greatly prefer the white cloth cover if they can be had in that. I believe the publishers are using a rather ugly red limp leather, but you might find the white in some odd book shop.

I never got the two we ordered at Eatonís.2 I never called for them. Negligent me!

How about excercising your pen hand a little?




(LOVE of course)
