1 Dear Brother
3 Cron is going over your MS & I have written to England about it to a
4magazine editor. I hope he will take it but don't make sure at all. I
5may not be able to get it taken. But I will do all I can: & Cron is
6going over it carefully putting any little omissions &c right. The
7unreadable little stories are the most interesting part, that about
8the man who shot the nigger is very good. If you write more put in all
9the stories you know. But perhaps before writing more you had better
10wait & see how this one gets on.
12 Give my love to all.
13 Yours, with love from Cron & myself
14 Olive
16 What a sweet wife & beautiful little girl Hudson has got.
