Citation/reference: The Correspondence of Henry David Thoreau, ed. Walter Harding and Carl Bode (NYC: New York University Press, 1958), 590. This is probably a rejected first attempt at the letter Harding & Bode refer to, known from sale catalogues and therefore unlikely to be this sheet within the body of the Notes on Fruits. "This letter asked the publishers of a newly organized New York newspaper to include Thoreau's name in their list of lecturers, according to the catalogue of the E. C. Stedman sale (Anderson Galleries, January 24-25, 1911), which listed the manuscript. It was later listed in the catalogue of the John Heise sale (American Art Association, May 6, 1915), with one sentence quoted: 'I should like to have my name included in your list.'" (Correspondence, 590).
