Dear Mr. Muir:

While not wishing to harass you in the matter of your new book, you will perhaps allow us to say that we shall count it a great pleasure whenever you can fix any definite time that the manuscript will be likely to be in our hands. We appreciate all the difficulties in your way, but we and the public are eager for this new book.

Yours sincerely,

[illegible]
