Mr. Jack London,
Sonoma Cc., Cal.
Dear Mr. Lcndonj
1 was glad to have your letter of the 19th., because of its good disposition and character. 1 appreciate
it—appreciate your rrotive in having Paul Reynolds send over
the two manuscripts, Samuel and Told, in the T)reoling Ward.
Frankly, as ycu anticipated, 1 am afraid that our
■readers would find it a bit of an effort to get the most out
of the Island McGlll dialect, excellently as it Is done. But
for this feature of the story, we would have no hesitancy in
taking it. Our feeling, however, Is that this Is not quits
the medium for that particular story.
Six we~ks or two months h'^nce you ere going to need
a change of thought or a bit of relief in case you are working
on a. novel, and you are going to decide that the best way to
•refresh or relieve yourself is to write a i;hort story. Then
you are going to do a bully good one and send it to us or 1
toiss my guess.
Until then, believe n-e, with best regards to both
yourself and J.Vrs. London,
