Mr. Frederic Sherman,
28 East 85th St.,

New York, N.Y.
Dear Mr. Sherman:

I thank you for your letter of July 9 regarding
"The Painter's Holiday," but am afraid that I must ask
you for a little more information.

I am completing at last my bibliography of
Carman for
the study of his work which I have made for the
Ryerson Press '
"Makers of Canadian Literature" series, and as an example of
the form I am following, give below my description of the
second edition of "The Painter's Holiday".

The Painter's Holiday, and Other Poems. New York:
Privately Printed. 1911. Demy octavo, blue paper boards,
white paper back, pp. 43 (-I). Edition: 150 copies, on
French hand-made paper. "Privately printed by Frederic
Fairchild Sherman."

May I ask whether the above description would
apply also to the suppressed first edition of "The Painter's
Holiday
" with the substitution of the word "Italian" for
"French" in the reference to the edition?

An early answer as to this point would be much
appreciated.

I am not just sure when my Carman study will be out,
but it will not be before Christmas. I shall, at any rate,
send you a copy when it appears.

Yours truly, Address: 258 Garden Ave.
