Mr. Seibel1

Please tell Mrs. S.3 for me that if she can I will be over to spend the night next Monday night. Perhaps we can begin to trim the tree then. The McClungs4 are going to have a tree this year and I shall have to help them trim theirs Wednesday night. I dont want to break our old custom5, as I have grown to count on it, so I will come to you Monday night, if that suits.

Hastily Willa Cather.

Are you always out?
