file in [illegible]Martinez July 23, 1913Dear Johnson:The longer I brood over the Century Company's behavior toward you the more unthinkably outrageous it appears. I can't yet venture to say how mad it makes me. But you dear friend have nothing to regret. Though yet young you have done a great life work and have all the world with you ready for your own books now you are free in the world of letters.I feel sure you will see that all's for the best though instead of heart thanks and a big just pension they give far less than nothing
