Typed letter signed "Taylor Caldwell". 1 page, 7¼x10¼, on Caldwell's personalized stationery. Sept. 25, 1941. Addressed to "Miss Werner". In full: "Dear Miss Werner: Thank you for your nice letter of September 14th. I'm always glad to hear what my readers think of my work. At the present time I am writing a novel of a family of German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania in 1880. It will be called THE STRONG CITY. I think it may be of especial interest to you. Anyway, I hope you read it. Thank you again for your letter, Incidentally, a 'yurt' is a black, beehive-shaped tent, in which the Mongols lived. 'Anda' means sworn brother. 'Nayon' is a noble or aris-tocrat. It has the same origin as 'Aryan', which literally means a title of nobility, and has no racial meaning whatsoever, despite ignorant people who know nothing of etymology. Indians used 'Aryan' as a prefix to a name, just as English baronets are called 'Sir.' 'Nokud' means a kind of bodyguard, a Praetorian Guard, such as Roman Emperors used to have. I hope this answers your questions. Sincerely yours,".
