Dear Dorothy1;

I must say a word about your splendid article3 on Vermont4 in the Nation5,- the only interesting one so far in that dull and deadly series6, the only one that sounds as if it were about human people. Why did Mr. White7 have to make his8 so awful?

Drop me a line to let me know on what day you can best spare the time to see Knopf9. It would be a great joy to me if you could spend a few hours here in the apartment10 with me before or after our call on him. I know how busy you'll be, so I don't ask for anything. I've already taken so much of your time and strength this spring. But if you could come here for a little while, it would be lovely.

Yours Willa
