Mr. F.F. Sherman, 578 Madison Ave.,
New York City N. Y. Dear Mr. Sherman:-
I have to come to you again for information concerning
Carman publications, this time in
connection with his so-called first publication, the broadsheet containing "A Woman's Exile," etc.
I told you in my letter of Sept. 10 that
I had discovered that this broadsheet was not issued until
well on into 1888, at least. The copy I got from you, while
inscribed by Carman, was not dated by him, but a copy I have
now unearthed in
McGill University Library,
presentation is dated Sept. 11, 1888.
Does your copy which no doubt, like all the
others I know of, is inscribed-- bear a date, and if so will
you be so good as to let me know what it is?
By the way, may I ask also whether you have
any broadsheets, leaflets etc. not described in your Check List,
and if so whether you will let me have details of them.
By the way again, did I ever send you, or have you
got a copy of
Odell Shepard's book on Carman, which was published here some years ago.
With renewed thanks for what you have already done for me and expression of my regard for you, I am
Yours truly, Address
R. H. Hathaway, 258 Garden Ave.,
Toronto 3, Ont.
