I am pulling off the story3 at record rate, and enjoying this spree of work so much that I have decided not to go to New York4 until February 1st. I shall have a large chunk of the book done for you in April.5
Please do stop the war6. There will be nothing agreeable in the world until it is stopped. I suppose they will patch up a temporary peace and then, in twenty–five years, beat it again with a new crop of men. I hope to see you in New York when you sail7, if not before.
Honor bright, the new novel is a good one!Faithfully Willa Cather
