Riverside, Cambridge, Mass. 18 June 1870
My good Friend
I have but a moment today in which to acknowledge your welcome letter of May 14, enclosing the charming story "Det Utroligste" which I really think one of your best stories. It will appear in the Sept. part of the maga[zine].
I am just starting on a little journey and will write again on my . return a fortnight hence.
Most heartily yours
HORAcE E. SCUDDER
