Dear Mr. Markham,
I hope you will not think I am taking advantage of your kindness in writing you today. I repeated your remark to Viereck, and he repeated it to his publisher, Mr. Yard. Needless to say, both were greatly pleased. It seems that on Wednesday next Mr. Yard is sending over the country to his largest papers (The Boston “Transcript,” etc.) a big advertisement of “Nineveh,” and he is eager to include this splendid estimate of yours.
Yesterday was an inspiration!
I shall remember it always
With affectionate greeting,
Leonard Abbott
