The Art of Rejection

I HATE BEING ON THE RECEIVING END !

House of Heart

April 19, 1912

Dear Madam,

I am only one, only one, only one. Only one being, one at the same time. Not two, not three, only one. Only one life to live, only sixty minutes in one hour. Only one pair of eyes. Only one brain. Only one being. Being only one, having only one pair of eyes, having only one time, having only one life, I cannot read your M.S. three or four times. Not even one time. Only one look is enough. Hardly one copy would sell here. Hardly one. Hardly one.

Many thanks. I am returning your Manuscript by registered post. Only one M.S. by one post.

Sincerely yours,
A. Fifield

Miss Gertrude Stein,
27 Rue de Fleurue,
Paris, France.
