Enjoyed his letter and is glad he wrote. Interesting that his mother owns High Mowing. Wrote much of the later part of in a tent at the bottom of the hill between there and Stony Brook Farm, when owned the property. Was staying at the Shattuck Inn and would go up the road and through the hedge to the tent. Would go back to the inn at midday through the woods, where there was an abundance of lady's-slipper and Hookers' orchid. [Varieties of both lady's-slipper and wild orchid are marked in Cather's personal copy of Mathews's Field Book of American Wild Flowers at the HRC.] Once saw a fox. Glad he loves both High Mowing and the that was partly written there. Has not gone to the inn much since the woods were damaged by a hurricane. Willa Cather [Stout #1632]
