Would you pass this chain letter on to three of your friends or neighbors? I have made the copies for you on my typewriter, to save your eyes. You will only have to mail the copies to friends, and mail my appeal to you, with ten cents, back to Madame Grosjean5—a fine woman, one of the exiles6.

I am well and happy, working hard on my the proofs of my new book7. It will be out in the fall8. I go west for a few weeks late in the summer, probably September, and shall dash in for a look at you and a hug of you.

Lovingly Willie

Jack9 is doing so well!
