Dear Mr Markham:
I have your secty's note, with enclosures. I am much indebted to you for your kindness. I cannot tell for some time what I shall use of the material-- except that it will include the Man with the Hoe, and a passage from the Desire of Nations. I will return all the material after copying what I may need. I will of course see that your copyrights are safeguarded, and I will send you proofs in due course.
Sincerely,
U Sinclair

A word on the wing
Edwin Markham
Am glad you have your eye on "The Desire of Nations".--M
