R[obert] U[nderwood] Johnson
J.M.2.little concerning a certain topic, and keep one from desultoriness. We should be very much obliged to you, and I think it would increase the effectiveness of these two articles, if you can thus rearrange the material.N.B. if this suggestion seems impracticable, it might be well to cut down the matter to one article to be homogeneous with the Glacier Bay descriptions. It strikes me as all good but as not all conceived in one spirit, for a single magazine article.I send you proofs of the pictures as planned. They will all go in the secand article. Kindly write on them full titles. We hope to have a map of Alaska in the first article, and one of Glacier Bay in the seconi. Have you these?I also send herewith for the publishers, The Century Cod's check for $300, and should be glad to know if this is satisfactory to you for these articles, considering your hot-weather work.Yours faithfully,[illegible]In another Cover.[illegible]01481
