Abstract:

The papers contain manuscripts for fifteen stories, plays, poems, and an outline. Letters to various publishers, editors, writers, actors, and directors chiefly concern Marquis's creative endeavors. He solicits the opinions of Robert Bridges, Vincent McCafferty and William Lingel on several pieces. In other letters Marquis encourages young writers, describing the influence of his journalism career and giving advice on marketing poetry. He explains why the "Evening Sun" dismissed H.L. Pangborn and regrets his failure to review Christopher Morley's "Shandygaff". Personal letters convey news of family, finances and health and ideas for novels.
