Dear Mrs. Fields1

I shall be so glad to see you this afternoon at five. You will not think me importunate for having telephoned so often, will you? You see I have wanted to know you and Miss Jewett4 for so many years, and as my time is short now I cannot bear to go away without having seen more of you.

Sincerely Willa Sibert Cather
