Dear Mrs. Fernald,


Thank you for your letter about the piracy of the two articles in Citadel. We are satisfied to leave the matter as it is until you have heard from Cairo. At the same time, we hope the delay will not be too great, as wefeel [sic] that it should be settled as soon as possible to avoid any bad impression being made on the authors or their executors.


Yours sincerely,
