or the Yellowstone, but it does try to tell of what wildness there is still left in little books occasionally in Ohio. Your own studies are mentioned in connection with my paper upon "The Woods".
If at your leisure you care to let the author of "Around an Old Homestead" know what you think of his book, I can say with considerable authority that he will be greatly delighted.
In the meantime, he will introduce himself, will tell you how thoroughly he has enjoyed your Western books, and will hope to see farther inspirations from your pen in the "Century" and "Atlantic".

Sincerely yours,

Paul Griswold Huston.
