A. HILL & CO., Publishers.CABLE: "TITIMALO, NEW YORK."NEW YORK 189lations made here of anything in Swedish. We have short articles on Buffon and Cuvier, and if Linnaeus would inspire your pen we would like to have you give us some 2000 words, and indicate what reading matter you would like to have printed; or, can you suggest any other name which is prominent enough in the world to entitle it to be put in the "Library of the World's best Literature " and write on that name? We cannot, of course, give articles pure and simple on botany or any of the sciences.We would like to quote from your book one of the chapters, and hope you will give us permission to do so free from copyright, and of course if necessary we will get permission of the Century Company also, and if you will let us have a photograph of yourself we would like to reproduce the portrait in the book. I will send you a pamphlet which will give you an idea of the volumes we are going to print.Very sincerely yours,[illegible]02212
