Thank you3 for the statement which is truly pleasing.
By the way, I have never asked you for an advance, but I have at present such a beautiful bouquet of doctor's bills6 that I wonder whether it would be convenient for you to send me half of the amount due me in September, sometime this month. I am not destitute exactly, but you would greatly obligeYours truly, Willa Cather Mr. Ferris Greenslet,1 Houghton, Mifflin Company, 4 Park Street, Boston7, Mass.
