To Brigadier General John McA. Palmer
July 30, 1929 Wolf, Wyoming
Your letter reached me here in north western Wyoming in the Big Horn Mountains. I will be happy and intensely interested in going over your galley proof or ms. Please send it here where I will be until September 10th.
I am having a charming, healthy, delightful, bankrupting time here. This place is unique and they have all been wonderful to me.
It is splendid to find the publishers so impressed and pleased with your book. I will never be happy until one way or another you receive the public recognition to which you are so indisputably entitled.
With all conceit and no modesty, I am an expert on military brains—and you most decidedly have’m.
