Dear Mr. Walker1:

I am sending you this note by boy, for the case I wish to bring before you is really an emergency case - actually a shipwreck. Mr. William Archer4 went to Mexico5 some weeks ago to do an article for us on the Mexican situation6. He returned by way of the Merida; at least he returned on her a part of the way. The enclosed letter will show you the predicament he is in. If you can dictate some sort of a letter or opinion, and send it to me by messenger as quickly as possible, I will forward it to Mr. Archer.

Very sincerely yours, Willa Sibert Cather Mr. Roberts Walker, 115 Broadway, City2.
