Mr. Henry O. Tanner,
51 Boulevard St. Jacques,
Paris, France

Dear Sir:

We thank you for return of the preliminary proof of your biography as prepared for THE NATIONAL CYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY, with one correction, which we are very glad to have, and we appreciate very much the attention you have given the matter.

We hope you will give some consideration to the portrait feature of the work as outlined in our letter of September 20th, as there certainly should be some portrait accompanying your sketch to give it the dignity and character it deserves.

We are hoping that we may have the privilege of submitting sample portraits, with prices.

Very truly yours,
JAMES T. WHITE & CO.
