One page, 4to, a little grubby and worn at edges, some text faded but all legible. See image. Text: Dear Sir, | Kindly excuse delay in replying to yours of March 19th but, as [you] see, I am not in England [touring America, 1907-8]. I sh[ou]ld be very pleased to grant permission for the inclusion of some of my children's poems in your anthology. A great many children's poems are included in my last published vovl. of verse 'Songs of Womanhood' (Grant Richards, 1903) - Should [you] be unable to refer to a copy, if you will write to me after the middle of May when I expect to return to England, I may be able to help [you]. The publisher's permission will not be necessary [...] Note: Perhaps the planned anthology was An Anthology of Babyhood (Hutchinson, 1912).
