Dear Signor Ferrero1:

Your sister-in-law, Mrs. Frances Lance Ferrero4, has communicated with me, and I have given her the dates on which we shall need the translation of the two articles5; the first on July 1st, the second on July 15th.

Miss Tarbell6 is much pleased at the interest you express in her study7 of The Standard Oil Company, and we are glad to know that Madame Ferrero8 and yourself had a safe return home. Mr. McClure9 is now in Paris10. If he were here he would join me in good wishes and greetings to Madame Ferrero and yourself.

Sincerely yours Willa Sibert Cather
