Dear Miss Addams:
You are right in your understanding that we have been planning to print Chapter VII in the same number with Chapter III -- but they of course together ran into space which meant carrying over to the back. Therefore, we held up the [compaction] of Chapter VII until we had Chapter III in galley and could page it and figure out as to lengths, types, etc. (The back matter runs in smaller type.)
I am sending you with this proof of Chapter VII. I must ask you to send it back by very first mail wiring me, if you will, if there are changes which are important enough to wait for. As the manuscript had gone back to you a second time and been revised in conjunction with your passed proofs of the book, I had thought it would not be necessary to send you proof of this part if we compared it very accurately with the copy you sent in -- as we planned to do. Proof of Chapter VII has only this minute reached me, and I am sending this off to you post-haste.
