Dear Mr. Markham,
I am not sure whether this will find you home at this time of the year; but if not, it will probably be forwarded.
I have received a letter from Edward Carpenter by this mail asking me to forward him a copy of your poems, “The Man with the Hoe,” etc. He sends me money, and I presume he wants both volumes. It has occurred to me that you would be willing to send him autographed copies. Will you not do this? His address is –
Millthorpe, Holmesfield, New Sheffield, Eng.
I enclose two dollars.
Did you get my letter requesting a portrait of you? Please don’t forget me on this.
Yours sincerely,
Leonard Abbott
