[page 6] Save “our divine midgets of songlarks.” Your sincere friend Catherine H. Hittell 808 Turk St San Francisco April 3d. P.S. At Christmas time I sent several of your books as Christmas presents to Eastern friends and the praise they received was perfectly delightful. One friend made New Year’s presents of the book to his friends. First I thought I would send you some of the words of praise but then I remembered that a noble work was its own reward and I refrained. C. H. H.
