Letter requesting a copy of Adventures in Contentment
If still available, would you kindly send to me, with your account for same, a copy of "Adventures in Contentment", by David Grayson, published by your firm in 1936. I have recently completed the reading of this book, the pages of which I greatly enjoyed. The copy I have was borrowed from the Library of Parliament, and I should like to secure a copy for my own library.
Were it all possible to secure the author's autograph in a copy of "Adventures in Contentment", before sending it to me, I should be glad to meet whatever expense might be incurred in arranging for this. I understand that David Grayson is a nome de plume, and that the author is Ray Stannard Baker, who resides at Amherst, Massachusetts. To ensure obtaining his autograph, I should be pleased to prefer this request personally of Mr. Baker, if you deem that advisable.
