Letters
  • Ambrose Bierce, Wright's, California, to S.G. Blythe, Editor of the Cosmopolitan Magazine
    1899 Nov 27
    ALS, 2 pages

    [replying to Blythe's letter of the sixth, Bierce informs him that he has not written any fiction recently and has "uniformly declined to write for the magazines, being dissatisfied with the indefinite character of their proposals and the uncertainty as to when the work if accepted will be published." He goes on to admit that the Cosmopolitan Magazinemay have a different system of publication than most magazines and declares it to be better than the majority of them]
