My Dear Mr. Clemens

Thanks for the book— for the hint to Mr. Osgood — and for everything else. When I come North, as I hope to do in the spring, I shall most certainly sit up with you one day — because I am convinced that a man who has lumbago can stand anything.

I propose to write out our two short stories in the dialect and put them side by side.

Faithfully Yours:
Joel Chandler Harris
