Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

Have you been able to print any copies5 of "Antonia"6 yet? Please tell me how many copies of my other books you have on hand. I am going to give some lectures in Chicago7, Omaha8 and Lincoln9 in September, and I really ought to be able to answer questions and tell people whether they can get my books or not.

Have you seen the article10 on my books11 in the Nation12 of July 27th? What weather!

Yours W. S. C. (Willa Cather)
