63 Barton Street Presque Isle, ME 04769 September 2, 1980 Professor William I, Homer, Chairman Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Delaware Dear Bill, Thanks for your letter acknowledging rece?)t of the honorarium check, I, in turn, found the manuscript safely here upon my arrival, I appreciate your eagle eye in catching typos, spelling errors, and the other editiorial notations you made. Most of all I appreciate your words to Judy Metro in support of the essay volume, Yale Press seems reluctant to take on any new editions at this time, and from the way they are talking about possible production of the Hartley papers (1500 copy print order at $65. per voltime!), I have my doubts that they are the right publisher for this book, although I have as yet no definite word one way or another. Consequently I am beginning to look elsewhere for publica tion possibilities and have written a strong letter of solicitation to a number of publishers (a copy of which is enclosed), I have taken the liberty of using your name as a reference and am hopeful that if called upon you could continue to give enthusiastic support of the manuscript and its potential uses— especially as a documentary textbook for courses in that period. If you have any questions about the manuscript or the enclosed letter, please don't hesitate to call me—collect. My new phone number is,(207) 762-7761. Thanks again for your continuing help.
