Dear Bruce,

It has been a long time since you and I have communicated, and I am writing this more to say hello than anything else. I have been working steadily this winter on my book, The Old Man Remembers, and have made great progress. I am really having the time of my life doing the job. Even when I was recuperating from my eye operations I continued to work——with one eye!

That matter concerning the use of Hugh Glass material has come to nothing, although we were able to deal satisfactorily with the London firm.

There is something special that I want to ask you. I have long wanted to correct several lines in The Song of the Indian Wars, and I wonder if this cannot be done now so that the correction will be in any future printing.

I suppose you have noted that we have had a good deal of publicity this winter——really quite remarkable.

It seems now that I will have two fairly good eyes to use from now on. I am just now getting lenses.

With all kind thoughts,

John G. Neihardt
