Will you be kind enough to send me a copy of the story, if you have it, from which it is claimed the “Frost King” was taken, and if there is no doubt about the matter, and you can communicate with the author, will you be kind enough to say to her that we had not the remotest idea that Helen was appropriating the thoughts or ideas of any one.
