Miss Alice Fletcher,
214 First Street, S. E.,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Madam:-

The smallest number of reprints that we regularly furnish at cost to authors is one hundred. The reason for this is that the major part of the cost of the first hundred is in preparing the text for the press.  The charge for additional hundreds is only about one third of the cost for the first hundred, consequently if an author has to pay for twenty-five or fifty reprints he might as well take one hundred as the saving would only be ten or fifteen percent of a rather small charge.

According to the heading of your article you are at the Peabody Museum of Harvard University, at any rate that is the Museum from which your work issues.  Do you wish your reprints sent there or to your address 214 First Street, S. E., Washington? I am sorry to bother you with these details.  ^[[If you do not reply I shall send them to [[underlined]] Washington [[/underlined]] ]]

Yours very truly,
