1 The enclosed check from Lippincott, dated April 1, arrived
here today, via Scribner's. MIaybe you'd better tell the
Lippincott accounting department where to reach you so
you can collect a3 little more directly
I'm sorry to say that Stua~rt Rose wasn't fired by BIG CHIEF
BUTT RACK-RAID8 and thought it too much of a juvenile. He is
so good on working with your materifalithat this sort of throws
me.' Not many other editors would be able to take the time t~o
work with you on shaping this into material for their pages;
it's too long ih getting started, and it does have too many-
extraneous facets to fit the tight demands of most mageazines.
I wish I could think of specific suggestions for you,to pull
it into shape for such a place as Collier's but short of a
complete rewriting I don t see what to proffer in the way of
advice. I wish that could be otherwise, for oh, how, I'd
dearly like to have various things of yours in the market.
Do try something else again soon, and let me see it. ,- 4'
All the best--
