Mr. George S. Seymour, Chicago.
Dear Friend: —

You may use any of my lyrics in "The Quest" for your Christmas booklet. I would say that either of the following would be most suitable:

  • The Story (which should be called "The Ballad of a Child")
  • Hymn Before Birth.
  • The Child's Heritage.
Very truly,

John G. Neihardt
