Dated Wellesley Hills, 5 March, 1900. To "My dear Mr. Moody" (Winfield Scott Moody, editor of Scribner's "The Book Buyer"). Torrey had been sent the proofs of a "Forestry book" and asked to include a review of it in his article, due to appear in a later issue of "The Book Buyer". He says he doesn't see how he can fit it in, and apologizes, hoping Moody isn't too disappointed. He thanks Moody for the article by John Wright Buckham "The Modern School of Nature Interpretation", in the March, 1900 issue, "for its very handsome treatment of my books. All but the portrait I thank you for. That -- well, that I forgive you for." Torrey is today best known for editing the "Journals of Henry David Thoreau" (14 volumes, 1906). Two conjugate leaves, two pages, light toning, Very Good.
