On reading my story, "A Scarletin Study," in the March issue, I
noticed that your printer seems to be out of umlauts and has a shortage of
g's. At least, he substituted q's for g's in several places. I recently took
a trip to Hamburg, Germany, and while there picked up cheap several boxes of
umlauts. I am sending you one fourth-class mail. I have some old gee-strings
around, and when I find them I'll ship them off. You can tell your printer
he can stamp a dozen g's out of one string.

F&SF regrets the error. Upcoming: A new Somers story, in which the famous
dog-detective Ralph von Wau Wau and a new associate, one Cordwainer Bird,
become involved in a plot to steal Venice. The title is: "The Doge Whose Barque
Was Worse Than His Bight."
