Harris, writes to a fan of his magazine (PEARSON’S):
“…Yes I met Stephen Crane in London when I was doing the ‘Saturday Review.’ Harold Fredericks brought him to me. I had already read 'The Red Badge of Courage.' and thought highly of it. We got to know each other pretty well till he married and went into the country.
“You ask me why I have not written abut him. Because I have not yet finished writing about men of the first cclass whom I have met. Those of the second and third class must wait for my autibiography.
“I don’t know who publishes ‘The Open Boat’ and ‘The Black Riders.’ Perhaps I can get Hamlin Garland to write something on him for the magazine …”
Never one to miss a chance, Harris adds: “I wonder if you could get us some subscribers in you community …”.
