I send you the first copy3 of "The Lasso4," which has been issued to any one. I suppose you will be somewhat interested in this latest "lark" of mine, as it is rather a daring one, so not having leisure to come up my self this evening, I send you my private copy of the new venture.
I would like to have told you of the plan some time ago, but it was found necessary for a time to keep the affair absolutely secret; and even now Louise5 and I shall keep our connection6 with it some what quiet. I have taken the liberty to mark my articles * in this copy I send you.
Hopeing for your approval in this "our" new hazzard, and sure of your support, I remainYours Truly Willa Cather
