Dear Mr. Markham,
Thanks for the poem, which we had already taken from the “Journal” and which will appear in next week’s issue.
I think that it is far away the best and truest picture of this phase of modern Mammonism that I ever read. It is a master-piece.
It has gladdened my heart to see the sturdy way you have stood by Herron in his time of stress and trouble.
Yours Sincerely,
Leonard D. Abbott
