THE STAR MONT1ILY.
Out Park, III.,
The Editor, regret that the manuscript which
you had the goodness to submit to them does not seem,
after careful reading, to be quite available for use in
Thk Stab Monthly.
In determining the availability of manuscript
many other questions besides literary quality have to
be considered. Consequently, adverse editorial decisions are not necessarily based upon the intrinsic merit
of the material. Manuscript unauited to the immediate
use of one periodical may frequently come within the
policy of another. Moreover, if the space at Its command were larger, this magazine would gladly accept
many articles, stories and poems, which now it is
obliged to decline for lack of room.
The Editors esteem it a favor that the present
manuscript has been submitted to them, and wish to
assure you that it has received a thorough and impartial
consideration. In view of the quantity of manuscript
demanding attention tbey beg that the absence of criticism or of special reasons for unavailability be kindly
Very respectfully yours,
