5555 Lawton Avenue Oakland, Calif. 94618 April 10, 1980 Dr. William I. Homer, Chairman College of Arts and Sciences Department of Art 318 Old College Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Professor Homer, You might have wondered what became of my Hartley project. I am happy to say that the volume of prose is now complete, and I am writing to ask if you woxxld be so kind as to read it. The manuscript is nearly 700 pages, and I would not expect that you would need or want, at this point, to read' all of Hartley's essays, but I would be most grateful for your suggestions and comments on my Introduction, headnotes, foot¬ notes, and the book's general format, editing method, etc. If you think you would be able to undertake this phase of consxiltation on the project, I am able to dffer you an honorarium of $300. I will, at the same time, be submitting the manuscript to Yale University Press, so I have no urgent deadline, but I would like some idea of how this project might fit into your current schedule, i.e., how long you anticipate that it might take you to read and comment on it. I hope you are still interested in the project. I am most eager to see it through to completion—especially in view of the renewed attention Hartley is receiving with the Whitney retro¬ spective exhibition. I will be leaving for the Bast Coast on April 21st, and if I hear from you in the affirmative before then,, I 'shall send ,.t off the manuscript before my departure. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Gail R. Scott
