Dear Davis:—

I have been intending to tell you how bully I think the decorations of "Man-Song" are! You ought to congratulate the artist for me. He got right into the lines.

Davis, on July first I start on my three thousand mile canoe trip down the Missouri. Will use a four horse power canoe; start at Fort Benton, Mont., and go to St. Louis. Can't you drop me a line at Fort Benton, wishing me luck? I'll be there until the tenth.

Ever yours,

Jno. G. Neihardt Robert H. Davis, Esq. New York City.
