Dear Lucile:

Bruce Nicoll has just sent me a copy of the Danish edition of Black Elk Speaks! I had not even heard that the Danes wanted it. Now there are six foreign language editions of the book! And there will be more and more.

Fred Lee writes giving the latest quotations on The Indian Wars (boxed) $35 The Collected Poems $45 Isn't this bully?! The prices of all my out of print books are going up and up, which signifies a prevalent belief among collectors that I will grow in value — [survive?] our time.

John Madden has offered the fine portrait done by Szas ​ to the Neihardt Foundation in Bancroft.

I am eager to get started on negotiations with Nicoll. Will you want to contact him him before Random & Holt?

We need to hurry with the next steps. We cannot afford to waste any time now.

I hope you are not unpleasantly surprised at the deceivingly long list of corrections indicated. It's not really really formidable really formidable at all, as you'll see when you get at it.

Love ever and ever —

John N.
