Pittsburgh, Pa. My Dear Friends1;

I just could not get over Saturday evening, and as I go Wednesday am afraid I will not see you again. Your library cards I have left at the library. The Brownies4 will gladden Jack's5 heart and I thank Erna6 for him and hope she will not have grown quite beyond all recognition when I get back. I may drop you a line from the wild west7, at any rate will let you know as soon as I return. The pleasantest hours I have spent in Pittsburgh2 have been passed in your sitting room and I carry away happy memories of you all. And now Good bye for a month.

Yours as Ever Willa Cather.
