Our essays are after all to be published on commission, so we won't be able to send any copies for sale to America. If any American bookseller wants any copies he can get them from Carl Tittmann. See Strasse, Dresden. Of course I will send you some copies for yourself. Hope all is well with you.

A sister of mine now in Switzerland has been meeting the Putnams a good deal, & hearing a lot of praise of L of G & its author, with much information.
