to your library the only book of its kind. Mr. Keith was so pleased that he obtained one to read meanwhile because of its personal interest. I am not looking to those mentioned in the book to make it a success, as many of the writers are now dead, but none the less writing of preservation - it is to those who have libraries, and to public libraries that I look for the proper placing of the volume - the result of my many years hard work and compilation.Very respectfully yours,Ella Sterling Cummins.01705
