Mr. Nathan Van Patten,
Director,
Stanford University Libraries,

Stanford University,
California Dear Mr. Van Patten:

I received the attached letter from
Mr. Leventhal,
of the
Chocorua Press, some time ago, and purposed forwarding it
to you at once, but, unfortunately, have been delayed by pressure
of work in getting if off.

Mr. Leventhal, as you will see, intimates that he
thinks it would be to the advantage of all concerned if a formal
contract were executed at this time, stating the duties and
obligations of each of those concerned in the Carman bibliography,
and outlines the terms and conditions of their standard contract.

These, as he presents them, seem to me to be about
as fair to all concerned as they could well be, and I am sure you
will agree with me that such is the case.

Mr. Leventhal says, as you will see, that he will
be glad to consider any suggestion as to additions or variations,
I have none to offer. Have you?

I duly received your recent letter, but seem to
have mislaid it, as I am unable to locate it for the moment.
I shall answer it as soon as it comes to light, but in the meantime, may say that I hope to return collations shortly with some
emendations and corrections indicated thereon for your consideration.


Kennerley promised, when I sawhim in New York
at Easter, to go over the collations and to write me his ideas
about them, but I haven't heard from him so far.

By the way, have you seen No. I of Acadie,
published at Fredericton, with a bibliographical essay by me on

Carman's books?

Yours truly, Address: R.H.Hathaway,
258 Garden Avenue,
TORONTO 2 Ontario
