What Fools these Mortals be!


Mr. Chas. W. Chesnutt,

Cleveland, O. Dear Sir:

Enclosed please find our remittance for Five 50/100 Dollars ($5.50), in payment of your contribution, entitled The Origin of the Hatchet Story, which appeared in No.633 of "Puck."

Correspondent: Keppler & Schwarzmann was the publisher from 1877–1913 of Puck (1877–1918), a very successful humor and political satire magazine based in New York City. The magazine was started by Joseph Ferdinand Keppler (1838–1894) in partnership with Adolph Schwarzmann (1838–1904), a printer. Henry Cuyler Bunner (1855–1896) was the editor from 1878 to his death. Chesnutt published nine stories in Puck.
