    [refers to earlier correspondence between Putnam and Ambrose Bierce concerning the publication of his book, Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, which was eventually published in San Franciscoby Bierce's friend, E.L.G. Steelein 1891. Bierce had claimed that he could not get an Eastern publisher to accept his book for publication, but this letter indicates Putnam had made Bierce an offer which he refused.]
