Nathan Van Patten, Director, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford University, Calif. Dear Mr Van Patten:
The receipt of check for that
pamphlet -- for which please accept my thanks, and also
those of my sister-in-law -- reminds me that I have not
answered your letter of July 16, with which you returned the copies of the contract with the
which I forwarded to you.
I was fearfully rushed when your letter
reached me, and therefore dropped it into my folder,
intending to give it my attention later, but seem somehow to have thought no more about it.
I, of course, should have sent you three,
instead of only two, copies of that contract, and now
send you the third duly signed and witnessed, with apologies for omitting to send it to you in the first place,
and also for my delay in acknowledging your letter of
I am afraid I must tell you that, while
I have been able to do a good deal of work on my part of
the bibliography, I am still far from competing it. I
have had a very busy time of it at the office this summer,
and in addition my health has been none too good , with the
result that I have been able to work on the bibliography
only at odd moments.
How are you coming on with your part of
the work? I have checked over the collations you sent me,
and revised then in some particulars, and purpose returning
them to you shortly, together with, for your information,
titles of items which you do not describe.
By the way, is there any chance of your
coming up to Toronto this summer as you anticipated? It
would be a fine thing for us both if you could manage this,
as there is much to discuss between us.
