F.G. NUMBER FIVE BANK STREET3 Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

The Adams4 book5 has come and it is the grandest present6 I have had in many a long day. I am now its passionate press-agent. I began stirring up my friends about it before I left Boston7. Mackenzie8 has been properly prepared9 to read Nancy Moore10's serial11. If you see her please tell her that I am ready for it at any time, and will see that it gets a quick reading at the office. If Mackenzie does not like it, he will decide upon it at once. If he likes it, it will probably take him about two weeks to make up his mind, so she must not be too impatient. My own valuable opinion I will send her at once.

Faithfully Willa Cather
