Dear Arthur:

How nice of you to send me a copy of The Mermaid Inn! I am in the midst of it now and enjoying every page of it.

Yours sincerely,
Ned Pratt.

P.S. I have been indoors for eight months with arthritis and its attendant ills.


The Mermaid Inn
Edited by Bourinot (Ottawa, 1958), it was a selection of essays by Archibald Lampman, Wilfred Campbell, and Duncan Campbell Scott 'on life and literature' (to quote the subtitle) originally published under that title in the Toronto Globe 1892-3 as a weekly column.
