WJ. Pragmatism. Autograph manuscript, ca. 1904.  b MS Am 1092.9 (4459)

“’Pragmatism’—against my expectation—hasn’t sold at all well, in spite of the great advertisement given to the name of it by the critics. It behooves me to execute my ‘Introduction to Phil.,’ in hopes of a college sale, for my Oxford lectures certainly won’t sell even as well as Pragmatism.”--Letter to Charles Strong, 31 December 1908.
