Butlers Book is now about three quarters written that is to say be has gotten no More than three quarters Way Down to the present time. His publishers while not exactly alarmed at the Outlook foresee that the Book is bound to expand to nearly 1,200 pages. The Doughty old general does Little else at present than write. His is the easy Way of authorship. He lies Back in a big easy chair in his Library at Lowell chewing an unlighted Cigar and rumbles and sputters out his sentences to his private Secretary. When the general has finished his Forenoon a dictation he goes out to ride and the patient private Secretary reads his notes to another shorthand writer who in turn writes them out with a typewriter.
