⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ To Mr S S McClure Dear Mr. Mackenzie1:

I sent Miss Lewis3 the first installment of the story4, greatly improved over the first version, I think. It is probably in your hands by this time.

I do indeed feel much better about everything since Miss McClung5 saw you in New York6 and cleared up the misunderstanding about my first letter to you.

Faithfully Willa Cather
