"Sound Beach Conn. April 19, 1901. My dear Elbert: You remember more than a year ago you thought of putting my fiddle sketch in a leaflet ad. I was then glad to say yes but now if you haven't I wish you would not for I can see a way to use it in a book to some advantage. We shall be in Buffalo the third week of June and - if you're there- I'm coming over to have a look at you and, then, you may see what kind of a critter I am. But damned if I'll clean or wash dishes or wheel the wheelbarrow. I only ask for an hour with the boss. With all good wishes, Sincerely, Irving Bacheller." Near fine with minor rubbing to spine and corners. Neat Utica Library stamp.
