Decr. 10. 1881.

Dear Mr Whitman:

We have your favor of the 8th: we had already heard of [Messrs?] Trübner's change of base and Bogue's acceptance of the books, but we are inclined to think it has been for good, rather than otherwise, as we received yesterday from Bogue a cable order for 250 copies more.

I think we on this side can stand that, if Trubner can.

Very Truly Yours.
B.H. Ticknor

I was in hopes you might have found something for the soldiers. You will see by the [first?] numbers (there will be [illegible]) that it will have a very high literary list
