Dear Mr. Scaife1:

My three books3 have come4, but the bookseller5 in whose shop I am writing has had his order with you since April, and his books have not come. The You acknowledged his order March 19th.

Please hurry them along as my friends here are impatient for the book.

Thank you6 for sending a copy to The San-Fox Store CHAS. L. COTTING

Dorothy Canfield7 and for looking up her address.

I am very much pleased with the look of the book and the printing of the illustrations. I could wish that the paper were a trifle more cream yellowish in color, like that of "O Pioneers"8, but I suppose in these days9 one cannot be too fussy about paper.

Sincerely yours Willa S. Cather
