Dear Mott:-

I think you will be glad to hear that THE SONG OF THE INDIAN WARS is finished at last. Allen True, the mural painter is working on drawings for a de-luxe edition which Macmillan will bring out in January shortly before the trade edition is published. True know Indians and the West, and there is every reason to believe that he will make a very beautiful book. There will be a cover design, and sheets, title page, initial letters and fourteen full page drawings - not illustrations of particular incidents, but illustrations of the mood of the WARS. True has been working with Brangwyn in England on some big mural stuff, but is now resting in Italy. He calls working on my book recreation.

I feel pretty sure that you will regard the WARS as my best thing in every way . . . . . . . . .

With every kind thought,

Jno. Neihardt
