Laid in is a 3 page letter from Willis on his law firm stationary written in 1891 in it he demurs from giving up his copy of Adair's History of American Indians to the state library, but is willing to part with his Blackstone given his lack of use for it. In Wright's American Fiction there is a question mark behind his name as author I would think with this affirmation it can be removed. Bleiler, page 6.
