Dear Mrs. Berg and Mrs. Graves:

"The Song of Jed Smith" was finished on April 16th, and so the Cycle of the West is completed as planned 28 years ago. The new book will appear in the Fall, and the complete Cycle, in one or two volumes, will probably be published next year.

I've felt moved to share this bit of family news with two faithful ladies whose warm-hearted interest means a great deal to me.

With kind thoughts,

Jno. Neihardt
