Dear Mr. Markham,
Herron, Gorky, now Earle – not to mention Jack London, J. William Lloyd, Elbert Hubbard - it fairly takes one’s breath away!
This whirlwind burst over me as suddenly as over everybody else. I knew nothing of the Earle situation, until his wife wrote me about it. It looks ugly on the face of it; but I personally think it’s all right, and that all three have acted from high motives.
Under separate cover I am sending you my article in the “Book News Monthly” on Viereck.
With affectionate greeting,
Leonard Abbott
Don’t trouble to answer this.
