Abstract:

In a letter, Jun 30, Lang writes to S. S. McClure to note that "The 'Compensation' is not magnifique, but the interest is not contemporary. I will think it over, and let you know. Probably three installments of, say, 3000 words each, would see it out, for your purposes. I will write again." Continues on to say, "With horror I say it, I don't like the butchery in the Wrecker. Fight as much as you like, but shoot my unresisting men, merely to save your own neck, no. And our Irishman would not have thrown a knife, I think."

In a letter, Apr 15, to an unidentified recipient he states "There appears ot be some error: I have heard nothing of your firm in connection with any work of mine."

In a letter, Jun 23, to S. S. McClure he writes that he has found the Greek book he wanted and will go to work on the story of 'The Fall of Troy.'" He also suggests McClure look at three writers: Morley Roberts, Horace Hutchinson, and "Mrs. Bovil."

In a letter Mar 1, to McClure, he enthuses about a proposed series of "interviews with great men dead and continues with a disussion of "new" men, including Stanley Weyman and a Mrs. Bovill, among others.

The collection also contains a magazine page with 3 photos of Andrew Lang on one side, and 2 on the other and a brief biographical sketch of Lang.
