Mr. Pyle came to Princeton yesterday. His train was late in arriving, and he had to hurry away, so that we had very little time together; but I think we came to a perfect and very satisfactory understanding about the illustrations.
I gave him the manuscript of my article, the copy I made for the printer, and the only one I have except my first draught. He promised to have it copied for his own use, and to send it to you by next Saturday, the 31st.
I am very much obliged to you indeed for the Byrd from the Columbia Library. I will carefully observe the limit of two weeks. I will, to save you trouble, return the book direct to the Librarian of Columbia College
With much regard,
