Dear Mr. Chandler1;

I understand perfectly5, now that you have explained it to me, why you cannot give me permission to interview the Glovers6. Moreover, when I am in the West they will probably be in Boston.

Mr. Peabody7 tells me that you have secured a copy of the 1881 edition8 from the Congressional Library, so I shall not bother you with my copy now.

With all good wishes to you.

Sincerely Willa Sibert Cather
