Mr. Scaife3 FG Miss Van T.4
See what you can do with this and let Mr. Scaife know
⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

I couldn't, alas! let you have the Wagnerian5 kodak6, but I had a long session with Hollinger7 this morning, and if I get any good results you shall have them soon.

Suppose you put a little stress on the Cliff Dweller material8 in the story9 in advertising it? All the Americans who usually go abroad are going west this summer, and there is a tremendous spurt in Cliff Dweller interest10. Even Geraldine Farrar11 told me she was going to hunt up the Cliff Dwellers after she got through with the movies.

Faithfully Willa Cather
