My dear Mrs. Brockway:_

Many thanks for the clippings from Aberdeen and Mount Vernon. I need to see such things, for I never seem to know just how an audience feels about what I have to offer. Often while I am before an audience, I waken from a sort of sleep and feel panic-stricken, wondering if I am boring them horribly. And this, in spite of the fact that I have no fear whatever of a crowd and don't understand stage fright. I knew the crowd at Cornell liked my stuff, because it remained to tell me. But I didn't know a thing about Aberdeen. I had a feeling that perhaps I hadn't quite gotten across.

You may be sure that I know of your loyalty to the scheme to which I am devoting my life; and you may be sure that I deeply appreciate your help.

With every kind thought,

Jno. G. Neihardt

I've sent the clippings to Mr. Long of Omaha, who is managing me in the West. He will return them to you.
