Please let me know the latest date on which the manuscript should be in your hands. If something comes to me on the war, I shall (be) most happy to send it. If not, I will send you a poem in the spirit of your undertaking, the spirit of freedom and good will. Or, are you particular as to the theme of the verses? The fact that I contribute at all will indicate my sympathy with your work. Please send me a line." Signed in full. Also included is an attractive copy of Markham's poem "The Man with the Hoe."

I just finished reading about the store and your family in Nick Basbanes newest book, Patience & Fortitude. I had previously read an article in Book magazine. I wished that I lived near so I could visit your store, it looks and sounds like a place I dream of getting lost in. Basbanes book mentioned that your father began a memoir but was, sadly, unable to finish the work. Would it be in anyway possible to read what must be a great historical adventure in bookselling? I wish you all continued success and a very long existence. - Steven Griese
