The Tar Baby and the Tomahawk: Race and Ethnic Images in American Children's Literature, 1880-1939

Dear Mr Harris—

I owe the addressee a most delightful portrait of you in pencil but when I try to thank him the Post Office treats me as you see

Please find him for me & he will understand why there has been an apparently ungracious delay

Ever yours sincerely
Rudyard Kipling
