Dear Louis -
I am handing over the Hoe-Down arrangement for reproduction to-day. The Blue Print Co. will mail you your copy direct by air-mail. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to extract the violin part -- so, please have a copyist do it, and send me the bill.
Please remember that I had no chance of discussing the arrangement with a violinist -- so feel free to change anything you find awkward or unviolinistic. Also write in any suggestions you may have and I'll check them with you in March. (I have no intention of printing until I have had a chance to discuss it with you.)
Thanks for the letter and enclosed program.
Address me care Hotel Empire as I am leaving Bernardsville.
