I cannot tell you how glad I was to get your two kind letters. I wish you could have stayed longer when you were here. You could not get an idea from those few hours of how really well off we3 are here. The weather is about the only thing that happens, but when one is resting that is quite enough. I am working on another story4 about the length of the Bridge Builder5 one, and enjoying it greatly. It is a great relief to get back to writing again. I shall try not even to think about magazine work for awhile, so I won't write you anything about it this time. We have been much more cheerful since your visit. A talk with you straightened me out more than anything else could have done, and I can tell you that I was much more delighted to see anyone.
Your photograph came on Isabelle's birthday. We had a grand birthday dinner and wished that you could have been with us. I hope that you are still feeling as well as you were when I saw you.Faithfully Willa Cather
