I expressed the dummy4 to Mr. Greenslet5 today. If it is not too much trouble, will you see that the initial letter S. is cut out of my name on the cover6, and the plate then soldered together, leaving merely the two names.

When the [illegible]illustrations are printed, please have them set a little lower on the page, and pushed a little toward the outer margins, as I have indicated. I want them to give the effect of a great space of air and sunlight overhead.

Please come to New York2 soon again and give me a little of your time.

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
