Dear Mr. Lighthall,
In regard to the enclosed,1 certain sonnets among those I sent you, viz. "The Loons",2 "An old Lesson from the fields,"3 & "Despondency"4 were from Scribner's magazine, and if you should decide to use them, no doubt permission would have to be obtained from the Scribner's. One piece entitled, I think, "Unrest"5 was from Lippincott's, and there's a number of pieces from The Week.
Yours very truly,
"The Loons" first appeared in Scribner's in September 1887.[back]
"An Old Lesson from the Fields", also called "A Lesson from the Fields," appeared in Rouge et Noir and Scribner's in November 1887.[back]
"Despondency", a sonnet beginning with "Slow figures in some live, remorseless, frieze," appeared in Scribner's, in June 1888. [back]
"Unrest", also called "Song" and "All day upon the Garden Bright," was originally published in Among the Millet. It did not appear in Lippincott's until September 1914.[back]
