C[harles] W[alter] Carruth
[Ma-]terlinck's exquisite essay on the Dog. Now while I own a copy of "Stickeen" it is so generally loaned to friends that I am practically without a copy, so that if you will be so kind as to send me an inscribed copy, I will place it with my choicest treasures.I note by the Club's local walk schedule that there is a descent upon Muirland planned for Apr. 2nd when your enthusiastic admirers will storm the big house on the hill, eager to grasp your hand and wish you many years of work and happiness. I am certainly planning to be among the devoted band.Mrs. Carruth and I are all alone now. Irina is teaching in the Sacramento High School, and Will, after spending a couple of years in the Music Dept. at Yale,is finishing with a year's organ lessons under Widor, the great composer and virtuoso in Paris. He will return in July.I trust that you are well and that Miss Helen has profited physically by a stay in the Southland.Thanking you most heartily for your continued interest in my unworthy self, I sign myself,Your devoted and enthusiastic admirer,C. W. Carruth
