⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ f Dear Mr. Johnson1:

Thank you for your letter. I should be very glad to undertake some articles for you after the first of December, should you have anything in mind then. I have taken a house up here for several months and want to be in the country until the really cold weather comes on.

I shall be sending you a short story3 within a few days. It is rather "yellow"4, but it deals with an aspect of New York5 that has not been written about much.

Very Sincerely yours Willa Sibert Cather
