Dear Mr. Markham,
Many thanks for your kind note, received at Indianapolis on the eve of our most successful Socialist Convention. We expect to get our little magazine out on Sept. 15, and shall use your poem on the first page of the first issue, presented in truly artistic style. So we should like the poem as soon as you can spare time to write it. I already have promises of articles from Richard Le Gallienne, Edward Carpenter, Ernest Crosby, etc., and I can promise that “The Comrade” will be a worthy expression of the Socialist spirit, whether it succeeds financially or not.
I returned yesterday from a most pleasant two weeks holiday, spent in company with the Herrons, H. Gaylord Wilshire and a Harvard student friend. We took in some of the most beautiful parts of the Adirondacks, spent two days in Chicago, taking part in a great public meeting there, spent four days at the Ind. Convention, and ended up at Buffalo.
There is certainly no sense in overworking one’s self, and I shall try to avoid that. But – the harvest is so great, and the laborers so few!
Yours sincerely,
Leonard D. Abbott
