Dear Mrs. Knopf1:

Why4 did you send me a check so promptly? You may not have a call for the book5! Thank you.

Please tell Mr. Knopf6 to send the proofs of the book of verse7 to me at the address given below. I hope they will be along early in August. I had some snap-shots8 taken as Mr. Spier9 requested and have sent them to N. Y.10 to be developed. As soon as they are returned I will send him a print. I leave this Bread Loaf Inn,
Bread Loaf, Vt.
really lovely place2 next Wednesday and go on to Grand Manan11 via Montreal12. The G. M. is a lovely island off the coast of New Brunswick13, where I shall have a cottage all my own to work in.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather c/o Miss Jacobus14 Whale Cove Grand Manan New Brunswick Canada
