Some proof
Saturday, May 15/15

When can you send me a bunch of proofs? I am working off some short stories4 and articles to meet orders and don't want to back off and go back to the novel5 until I have enough to keep me busy. As soon as I get the first lot of proofs I will go at the chapters in the latter part of the story that are to be revised, and will let you have them within a very few days. If you particularly want the revise before you send me any proofs, let me know at once and I can arrange it, but the other way would be a better economy of time for me. No revisions occur until page 380 of the manuscript.

Sincerely Willa S. Cather
