Dear Mrs. Saint-Gaudens1;

If you come to Boston2 please do not fail to let me see you. I shall be glad to be of any service to you that I can. Have you tried Small, Maynard & Co? I think they sometimes publish verses by unknown writers, also Little, Brown & Co. I think "Songs of Pain and Renunciation" much better than "Songs of a Cripple" as a title4.

Cordially Willa Sibert Cather
