Sept 16th. 1886

My dear Sir:

Your article, "My Book and I," will appear in our December number and I shall attend to your various instructions.

Is your forthcoming poem "[Sevilia?]" engaged for any publication, and, if not, could we obtain it.

I have been purposing to call over to see you, but my days are pretty well engaged and I am afraid of disturbing you at night. I shall call over some afternoon.

Yours very truly
Wm S. Walsh
