I am afraid the Introduction will be almost the last thing I write. I shall have to
wait to see how far the story3 tells itself before I
know how much to put in
introduction. But I will do it as soon as I can.
Tomorrow I shall send back to you the dummy4
Miss Bishop5 left with me. I like the look of
it very much. My name on the cover is 'Willa S. Cather'; if it is not too much
trouble I wish you would ask them to cut out the S and solder the plate, leaving it
simply 'Willa Cather'. I think the S looks too business-like for the
qeer queer title above it. Cutting out the S., you
have a bunch of queer enough proper names!
I shall have another bunch of copy to send you in two weeks.Faithfully yours W. S. C.
Please send Miss Bishop over soon again!
