Dear Miss Fletcher,

Thank you so much for the reprints from [[underlined]] The Academy of Science [[/underlined]]. They came just as I was preparing an article on "Philosophy, (primitive) " for Hastings' Encyclopedia of Relig. v. Ethics, and esp. the one in "The Indian + Nature" was immediately pertinent.  "The Study of Indian Minnie" is helpful also to a friend (Prof. Lorine Pound, whom I fear you did not meet) who is writing an article in refutations of the rather abroad theory of the Childs-[[?]] theory of the communal origins of poetry. I have referred Professor Pound to a number of your [[?]] + she finds them a mine of materials.
