My Darling Carrie1;

How many times I have read your dear letter over—and I have it now beside me. No, my dear, I don't think I can go home4 this fall or winter. I am here2 working hard and happily on a new book5—am in the middle of it, indeed. After O November 10th I shall h be at my apartment, 570 Park Avenue6.

where I have often worked, finished "Antonia"7 here and began the "Archbishop"8 and did the best part of "Shadows"9 here. I always have the same two rooms and bath up under the roof, and the management10 are so good to me—they are old friends now.

I am sending you a book11 that I think you will like for the people in it. The translation is rough, but I think it is a good picture of modern Norway12.

I am well, except for my usual rheumatic right shoulder, and take long walks walks in these glorious woods in the afternoon.

With my true love to you and Walter13, Mary14 and the Doctor15, Willie
