The Wolcott Dear Mr. Canby1;

If the letter3 which appeared in yesterday's Review4 is Mrs. Canby5's, I bow in blushing gratitude6. I don't think anything that has yet been said about the book7 has pleased me so much, and I am proud to be the subject of so keen and close an analysis. It has given me a great many new ideas about myself! Certainly it has given me very great pleasure. Will you express my feelings to the author?

Very sincerely yours Willa Cather

P. S. The typist has your article8 on Mrs. Fields9.
