[letterhead]while in this complicated scale of existence, you fill me with envy and despair.For I am a pugnacious, meat-eating barbarian, over fond of food and drink and excitement and the philosophic balance which is a matter of course to you comes very hard to me.I dont write much because I dont know much. I think a great deal but am shy on definite facts.Anyhow I've had a life of it, and whatever comes next I'm ready for it, for which "The Lord be thankit."You must get in with our "American Magazine" outfit. Phillips, Miss Tarbell "Dooley" Dunne, Baker and Wm Allen White. They are your people. Cant you get in some stuff for them.YoursWilliam Kent04314
