FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Thanky you for Miss Sergeant3's book4. It's one of the few things I've snatched time to read.

Won't you please write to Curtis Brown5 for me and tell him whatever you think best6? I am so submerged in letters and things these days.

I want to write to you about Mr. Llona7 as soon as I have heard more about them him from friends in Chicago8. His ideas are good. With his wife9's help I think he would make a very interesting translation10.

Yours W. S. C. Willa Cather
