June 4,1915.
Mr. F. F. Sherman, 1940 Broadway, New York , N.Y. Dear Mr.

Let me thank you for the manuscript of
Bliss Carman's poem "Mirage," which
reached me some days ago. No letter accompanied it, but I presume you sent
it as a result of my pointing out that while I had given you two copies
of the rare little Toronto "Low Tide," you had made only a meagre return
for them. In any case, please accept my thanks for it; but I cannot help
saying that, while I hate to appear grudging, I could wish that you had
seen your way to sending me something in the way of Carman publications
instead. I am more anxious to extend my collection of these that I am to
acquire further manuscripts, however desirable.

May I repeat the request made in my previous letter that you should
let me know of any good notices your Carman checklistreceives, so that
I may send for copies of the publication containing them?. A friend tells
me he saw one recently, but he does not recall where.

I would like to supplement my suggestion that you send a copy of the
checklistto Chief Librarian
Locke, of the
Toronto Public Library, by
suggesting that you send one to Mr.
A.E. Lang, Librarian,
Victoria College,

Toronto. Victoria College has, perhaps, the best collection of Canadian
literature of any institution in the Dominion, including a large number
of Carman's books, and I know that Mr. Lang would be properly appreciative
if you could see your way to sending him a copy of the checklist.

Yours truly, Address: 258 Garden Avenue.
