I have written Mr. McClure3, asking him if he can do the sketch4 you suggest. He is scouting about in Texas5, and I do not know whether he can hold himself down long enough to write anything. I ought to hear from him within a week. You suggested my writing a short article6 for the Book News7. Would you like it to be on the Cliff Dweller ruins8, and would you prefer it in the form of an interview? The subject is so big that it is hard to touch it lightly, but if you will write or wire me how many words you want I will produce some sort of copy and send it at once.
Please tell Mr. Scaife9 that the reviews in The Boston Advertiser10 and the New Bedford Standard11 seem to contain much quotable matter. I see from an ad in the New Republic12 that he anticipated me in my plan13 to combine the first and last sentences of the Nation14 notice15. The rhyme16 of Life17 seems to please people. You got the two photographs18 taken on the Mesa Verde, did you not? I sent them from Red Cloud19.Faithfully Willa Cather
