July 20/83.

Dear Walt:

I only succeeded to-day in getting the Critic of June 16, for which Brentano sent for me, and find that the item I copied into my letter was drawn therefrom. The article is very interesting. See what that cursed knout-empire does for praising a free book!

I hope you'll get a copy of the Russian Magazine.
