Riverside, Cambridge, Mass. 26 March 1869
Dear Mr. Andersen, .
The April number of the Riverside, containing "Luck may lie in a Pin" was sent to you a few days ago, and I now enclose a draft on London for £, 10/ten pounds sterling/ in payment of that story and the "Sunshine Stories" which Miss Raaslöff kindly translated, and will be printed in our May number now going through the press. Please present my compliments to Miss Raaslöff for her courtesy. I will regard strictly your injunction as to the use of her name.
The preparation of The Improvisatore goes on, and we hope to bring out the volume before long. I will see that copies are sent to you, and also to Mr. Longfellow & Mr. Marcus Spring.
I trust that you are rejoicing in the new season. With us, the snow still lies sprinkled about, but the rivers are free from ice and the air is beginning to be warm. With kind regards
I remain, Faithfully yours
HORACE E. SCUDDER
