A recent addition to our Book Trades Collection is this letter from Chicago publisher and bookseller Hugh Heron to E. Everett of Beaver Dam Wisconsin. Everett had evidently written asking for work as a book salesman. “I should judge you could sell books,” Heron writes, “but you don’t need to go at it in any ‘one horse’ way.” “If you get a proper outfit you can work up Beaver Dam Township First as you request.” He closes the letter stating he is “confident you can do well—Outfit Complete 2.00.”
