You have spoiled me, so that now every time I write a book I shall expect a nice letter from you. I’m particularly glad you like the last one4, which seemed another daring experiment when I embarked upon it—all in such a low key and so little action. Yet any attempt to speed it up would have quite spoiled it for me. I am surprised that so many people do like it, in spite of the fact that it omits almost every single thing that is usually supposed to be necessary in a story.
It is good news to hear that you are coming to New York2. Please telephone me when you come so that we can arrange for a visit. I enjoyed Mr. Seibel’s5 call and was glad to see your sister6. I also enjoyed the pre-historic romance7 Mr. Seibel left with me, and have been on the point of writing him about it several times.Faithfully Willa Cather
I’m so glad you liked Jake and Otto10, too.
