May we not try to use it as part of the syndicate series? The fact is, I forgot to tell you that before it came to us we had committed ourselves to a similar article from Mr. Smythe, the irrigationist, which is to be a chapter in his book which The Century Co. is to publish, and we felt under obligation to give [illegible] variety to that [illegible]I keep the article until I hear from you.[illegible]Yours faithfylly,R. u. JohnsonPlease [illegible]02174
