Description

Single 10 x 8 inch sheet, folded to make four pages, approximately 275 words. With the original postmarked envelope. Stoddard writes in response to an inquiry from James Blake of Blake's Book Store about his various publications. "Dear Mr. Blake / It is perhaps interesting to note that simultaneously with the first Boston edition of South Sea Idyls the book was issued by Chatto and Windus of London, under the title of Summer Cruising in the South Seas. Illustrated. Chatto now publishes it under the title of South Sea Idylls, uniform with his edition of The Island of Tranquil Delights . . . The Dream Lady is the title sketch of a vol of sketches to be published next year ’08. Friends of my Youth, another vol. which has appeared in the Nation Magazine of Boston, is to contain personal sketches of old friends, now dead, with letters from them . . . The travel sketches appeared in The Ave Maria, a magazine published at Notre Dame, Indiana. They are withheld for the present but will appear some day. Were announced, but withdrawn from publication . . . My contributions to magazines, etc., are too numerous to mention . . . I think all my books are out of print, save only South Sea Idyls . . . I wish you all success and am Very Sincerely Yours, Chas. Warren Stoddard."
