FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Several months ago3 I sent Mr. Linscott4 a photograph. He wrote that he would have some cuts made and then return it. Will you ask him to send it back to me now?

If your business office could send me a check along with the semi–annual statement, it would be a convenience at this particular time.

I hear good reports from persons who recently crossed on the Royal George. But I learn that thirty Nebraska5 and Kansas6 club women are crossing on the same boat, goinfg to a congress7 in Switzerland8. That is about the worst thing that could happen to me!

Faithfully yours Willa Cather

Please send an advertisinfg copy of "Antonia"9, with new jacket, the to Dr. Johan Bojer10, care of Moffat Yard and Co. 31 Union Square. I want him to take it back to Norway11 with him. Norwegians tell me it is the kind of book he would do a good deal for. It would be nice if you would write him a letter, calling his attention to it as a truthful presentation of pioneer life and a book of some literary merit.
