Thank you so much for your interest in "The Song of the Lark."4 I think it is the one of my own books that I have the most feeling for, and your interest in that story is especially gratifying to me.

I sent to several book stores, went up to Brentano's my self in a taxi yesterday, but they have not one copy left. They expect 25 copies sometime next week, the manager at Brentano's told me.

I expect now to be able to go to the luncheon5 on Wednesday next, and will do what I can to please you, though I am not an interesting speaker at all!

Faithfully yours Willa Sibert Cather
