Assuring you of the grateful 04449 thanks of a busy librarian for any information you can give us.I am very truly yoursFrances D. Thomson.P.S. The story in question was told by you to Mr. Wayne Darlington, and it is indirectly through his interest in it, that requests for it have [arrived?] her in Mount Vernon.
