Sept 30 1903
Mr. Edwin Markham
Westerleigh
Staten Island N.Y.
Dear Mr. Markham:
Your notes of the 3” and 7” inst. In reference to the poem of Mr. Max Ehrmann were received during my absence from the city and I note with regret that you do not see your way clear to write the introduction as requested. Still more do I regret that you should have raised the question of price, Mr. Ehrmann could, if necessary, pay ten thousand dollars for the work, but I never supposed for an instant that you would do it all, even for a million, unless you could do it conscientiously, and in that case that you would render a fellow author such service as a matter of duty even as others rendered you similar service while you yet struggled in obscurity to have your work and worth recognized by the world. Thanking you for consideration and with all good wishes I remain
Yours very truly,
Eugene V. Debs
