by Author's Club, and also by the Pen and Brush Club of New YorkI wrote you, I think from Johnstown, but am now in my daughter's home in the city for the winter, so I have no more of the circulars here but will give you the circular of another book, making this one on it. It would delight me to present you with one, but the arrangement is with the publishers, and I have nothing to do with it, except as I wrote to you, picking out your name as being the same as that of friends of mine in Edinburgh and London.The book is one of [home?] life, and is American to the back bone, even to the r[illegible] of the ears of Indian corn, which always makes a traveller homesick if he is an American.Very truly yoursJeanie Oliver SmithTemple Oliver.
