PAUL ISELIN WELLMAN
The American journalist and novelist sends letter regarding new works, signs name in black ink
Typed letter signed: "Paul I. Wellman" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Written on The Kansas City Star letterhead. Kansas City, Missouri. December 11, no year. Addressed to Lloyd F. Baker of Hastings, Michigan. In full: "I would not be candid with you if I did not say that a letter like yours is always bound to warm an author's heart. In writing BRONCHO APACHE I did the best my poor ability would permit to picture an Indian as he really is, without romantic coloring, and yet without calumny. Massai was a criminal viewed from the standpoint of our standards, but as he look at it, he was a patriot. I am very happy that you appreciated this point. Concerning my future books, I am working on one now, but have as yet not even told my publishers about it, because the time of its completion is so far away. Nor have I attempted to select a title. There is a juvenile, however, which I have been writing in the interstices of my more serious work, more for fun and for the enjoyment of my small son, than anything else,, which I may send in for publication this year. The title of this book is "Fort Frontier" and is chuck full of blood and thunder. The novel on which I am working may be entitled "Mark Throop", but as yet I have made no decision. Please accept my best thanks for you kindly letter of interest and appreciation. Sincerely".
