Newark, Jan 6th, l88l
My dear Mr. Koehler;
Yours of the 12th received but I cannot imagine what I could have written that could be construed into any expression of displeasure with yourself. You must be mistaken in that, as, not feeling any displeasure with you in any way, but quite the contrary, I cannot imagine what I could have said in my letter that could be so interpreted. If you still have the letter, read it again, and if it contains anything that could be so construed it must be because I have been unfortunate enough to use words that failed to convey my meaning. I was decidedly dissatisfied with Mr. Voigt's unaccomodating spirit, but nothing was further from my thoughts than finding any fault with yourself.
I have sent the proof of the "Morning" & you have probably received it by this time.
Mrs. Moran's proofs were no more satisfactory than my own & for the same reasons
