November 9 Wednesday – Sam wrote from Hartford to David Gray. He offered belated thanks for the “hospitable entertainment which I enjoyed under your roof” on his last trip to Fredonia and Buffalo. He also expressed desire to send a few copies of P&P to friends but “our lawyer said no, stop right where we were, till day of publication, Dec. 3” so as not to “impair the strength of English & Canadian copyright.” Sam divulged plans to print eight copies of the book entirely on China paper, a suggestion made by Anthony, Osgood’s art director, and to send Gray one of these books [MTP].

William L. Aden for Harper & Bros. wrote a nearly illegible note to Sam, which seems to lobby again for a submission [MTP].
