Edwin Markham, Esq.,
Brooklyn, N.Y.
My dear Mr. Markham:-
By the time you receive this letter I will probably have your Easter poem in my hands, and you will probably have it off your mind, with the exception of the proof reading. Can you now go ahead with the poem on Socialism in answer to Edgar Fawcett’s poem of which I gave you a proof? Please try to make your poem just as long as his. In Sunday’s paper you will see the announcement of your Easter poem for the following Sunday. I can only do this when the mss. That I announce is in my possession. The page of articles on socialism will be printed on April 15th. If I have your poem in the office by April 7th, which is next Saturday,- I will announce it in the Sunday paper, which, it being our Easter edition, - will have an enormous circulation. Senator Ingalls has written an article on this subject, and all the socialists in the country will probably read the page. I trust, therefore, you will have the article on schedule time.
Sincerely Yours,
Rudolph Block
