One thousand pardons! I have just found a letter that came from you while I was ill about Mrs. Peattie4's book5. I shall read the book at once, and if you still want me to write you something6 about it, I will. I got so behind with all my work when I was in the hospital that I am not even with the world yet.

Faithfully Willa S. Cather RLS
