Dated Feb. 1, 1933. To "Ernest", sending an article (not present here) she has written on "Louisa (May Alcott) and Her Father". She explains it was published by the editor of the "Educational Times" in a severely shortened form. She would like her friend, the addressee, to see the manuscript, "too long (10,400 words) for magazines", and hopes he can help her find someone to publish it as a small book. "All the group, Emerson, Thoreau, Alcott and the rest are to my mind so dear and brilliant in that lovely New England setting - & the Alcotts are so lively and brave, and so un-modern and soothing".

One sheet folded to make four pages, all are used. Quarter inch closed tear, light soiling, a Fine letter.
