Pittsburgh, Pa.2 Geo.Siebal1,
Dear Sir:

I wrote you some days ago saying that we could probably use your article4 on Wagner5 and asking you to call at the office6 the first of the week and see me in reference to the same. You have not shown up, nor answered my communication. I would like very much to see you about this before the week is out, as if we use it at all we must have it in the next number. Please let usknow in some way what your wish in the matter is. If possible call at the office some time next week. I will be in every morning from 9 to 12.

Yours very truly, Willa Cather.
