Mr. M. R. Harrington
Southwest Museum
Highland Park
Los Angeles, California

Dear M.R.:

I should have written you to some time ago concerning your "Shawnee Notes" but war work has kept us so occupied that I have been forced to put it off day by day. The Commission very seriously considered your paper and would like to hold it until our fall meeting in October, and then, if money is available, and we hope it will be, we will accept the manuscript and publish it to the best of our ability. If this is not agreeable to you, please let me know, and if in the meantime [[handwritten]] if [[inserted]] you should find anyone who is willing to take care of the publishing we will very reluctantly release it. I personally think that this would round out our Pennsylvania Indian publications. 

I would certainly like to hear from some of my old friends on the West coast. I understand conditions are not so good out there and perhaps some of you will again return to the East. It has been a long time since I have seen George Heye or any of the people connected with the old Museum. I certainly miss the old contacts. Give my best to Teluli. Believe me, 

Donald A. Cadzow
