1180 Murray Hill Avenue3 Dear Z. A.1

Yes, please do send me the copies4 of the Mirror5. They have not reached me as yet. I resume residence at on Bank street6 February 12, after a week in Washington7, and hope to see you there before the winter is much older. I leave Pittsburgh2 February 6th.

The novel8 is almost done, nearly 200,000 blooming words, if you please!

Yours W. S. C.
