Can you dine with Miss Lewis3 and me here4 on Thursday night, December 21st, at seven oclock? Isabelle McClung Hamburg5 and S. S. McClure6 will be here. I hope you can come, for the Hamburgs7 go South in ten days and Isabelle wants to see you.

I don't know when I've seen any verse that delighted me so much as yours8 in the Atlantic9.

Faithfully Willa Cather
