Did you ever get my letter telling you the papers4 I wanted, the ones containing the letters from Avignon5, Huyeres6, and Lavandou7? Can you find them for me.
I am to have a volume of verse8 published this spring—March or April. Badger9, of Boston10 is the publisher. He is putting out a lot of new verse by Clinton Scollard11, Edith M. Thomas12, Harriet Prescott Spofford13 etc. He has made me most liberal terms and if the book sells well I shall make a neat little sum from it. He wants to send circulars to a number of people who know me, and I want to ask you if you can lend me a Lincoln14 directory for a few days? I shall need it next week, and will express it back to you shortly. If you cant send a directory a telephone book would help me out. I shall have a review copy of the book sent you as early as possible.
Best wishes for the new year to you all.Faithfully Willa S. Cather. January Second.
