My dear
Hathaway :

Have I or have I not
written you in regard to the
essay on ME in the Canadian Monthly? It is a most
overwhelming treatment.
I couldn't read it straight
off, but had to take it in
short sips. Much too embarrassing to drink all

at once. I'm afraid it isn't
so, but it is very nice to have
you believe it. It is the longest
real “article” I have ever
had, and will do me no end
of good in Canada,—Thanks
to your friendship! I was
particularly pleased that
you picked out “ The Great Release ”
as one of the best. It is quiet
in tone and very sincere, and
one of my own favorites.

April is here, but I am
rather “ let down ” this year and
not quite up to her demands—
blessed spirit, at least not
as yet.

Thanks for the paper with
Ashley and
Crippe [n]
portrait. A horrible thing!
Much too soft for me!
M.O.' are the best in
Toronto, and Sidney Carter
in Montreal did a fine

I am looking forward to
seeing the immortal

Peter next week, and
showing him a new (and
dreadfully dry!)New


Poor myself—

[but] very rich in being
yours ever
Bliss Carman
