Kindly pass lightly and casually over the first part of the book, the "Songs of the Press," and read with fortitude the "Other Adventures in Verse," which is the [heart=work?]. The "Press" stuff is [verse?] jingle, addressed to the people who are marching to "rag=time" music and whose dominant singing note is [fond?] in the [Corn?] [diacritic]" [song?]. I th[illegible] the stuff, which is what Carlyle would call "rocking= verse rhyme," would popularlize the book. And, you know, even Lowell was not above that sort of thing. In the unlikely event of your wanting another copy you may have it. With kind wishes to you and Mrs. Muir, I remain. Yours faithfullyMillard03001
