My dear Mr. Sedgwick,
Both of the papers to which you refer have been published by Mac Millan in "The Long Road of Woman's Memory" of which I am venturing to send you a copy. May I ask you to communicate directly with Mac Millan & Co. My friend at court there has ↑always↓ [page 2] been Mr. Marsh. I should of course be much pleased to have a paper in such a book as you are contemplating.
The only writing I have in mind at present is something concerning the Russian religious beliefs formulated by Tolstoy as a factor in the present Russian situation.
Mr. Croly has accepted a short article for "The New Republic" but I have much more material on the same subject. May I enclose to you what Mr. Croly has [page 3] taken as a suggestion of the line of a longer article.
It may be premature to publish such an article now but, on the other hand, it is easy in these stirring times to delay a message too long and I quite agree with your statement that the peace article I sent you was out of date after war was declared. It may interest you to see it in pamphlet form.
