Editor of the Atlantic Monthly:

Messrs. Houghton, Mifflin, & Co.,-

--------------------

Dear Mr. Scudder,-

I am writing to say that by the time this reaches you, I may have changed my address, - having been offered a much better-paying position in Southern Japan, - at Kuma-moto, in Kyushu, For the interval it is better to address me, if necessary, thus -

c/o James Beale, Esq., Manager "Japan Daily Mail" Newspaper, Yokohama.

I hope to send an MS. soon; but I think you will find it more suitable for the book than for the Atlantic,- for it is rather long, and relates only to curious things

Lafcadio Hearn

- A friend told me of some unkind comments about my paper, made in Chicago. - I think the cause was that one Phillips, representing what is called "The United Press", wrote me last winter a marvellously patronizing letter, asking me to write for his syndicate. The letter was so insulting that I replied in kind. Hence I think, the "criticism,"

Very Respectfully, & truly Lafcadio Hearn

Oct 8, 1891
