Miss Caroline Green Speech Director Doniphan Public Schools District 26 Doniphan, Nebraska 68832
Dear Miss Green:

I have your letter of January 26, 1973, asking permission to produce my one-act play, "800 Rubles."

It gives me pleasure to grant permission, and there will be no charge. Please give credit. The play is included in my "Lyric and Dramatic Poems," published by the University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln. It has been out of print lately, but I think it will be back in print soon. If not, you should be able to get a copy from the library.

Many thanks for what you say about my latest book. I am glad you liked it. At present I am writing on the second volume of my autobiography.

Thanks for the birthday greetings.

With all kind thoughts,

John G. Neihardt
