F.G. Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Cannot your advertising department get some such note as the above4 inserted in the Authors and Publishers column of the Times Book Supplement5? A similar note6 about Hergesheimer's7 books appeared8 in this Sunday's Times.

The head of the Czechoslavak Bureau of the Foreign Language Governmental Information Service was here Saturday night telling me about their plans for publishing Antonia9 in Prague10.

I wrote a strong letter to the telephone company.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather

Please send me one copy "O Pioneers!"11 and one "My Antonia" for the Czechoslovak Bureau, and charge to advertising.
