Dr. Ruth Crone Apartment 53 418 South 38th Avenue Omaha, Nebraska 68131
Dear Dr. Crone:

I was glad to hear from you, and I greatly appreciate what you say about my little book, ALL IS BUT A BEGINNING.

You ask me to send you my signature for a copy of my book which you are presenting to Marion Marsh Brown.

I am sending a copy of the Flaming Rainbow referred to in Black Elk's great vision. I was named for this rainbow by Black Elk, and we have used it as a book plate for the first 500 copies of my book. I hope this will be satisfactory for your purpose.

With all kind thoughts,

John G. Neihardt
