How gracious you were to write me about the little volume4 I sent you5. I shall be so glad to go to see you when I am next in Boston6, if I may. I used to hear so much of you when I was staying visiting Mrs. Fields7 on Charles street8 and at Manchester9. If I go to visit Sarah Doris10, I shall ask her to take me to see you.

Very cordially yours Willa Sibert Cather
