⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ FG [illegible] [illegible] Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Thanks fot your check.

Please have one copy of "The Song of the Lark"3 and one copy of "My Antonia"4 mailed to Dr. Frederic Sweeney5 East Jaffrey, N.H.6 and charge the same to my account. Please have one copy of "Short Stories"7 edited by the English Department of Brown, sent to me, and do not charge to my account. I think you owe me one or even two copies,- especially since the story8 I am represented by happens to be the one on which we first became acquainted, when I was a young writer and you a young editor. It seemed much more "grim" then than now.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
