I got back from Boston4 last night for the opening of a friend’s5 new play6 at the “Empire”, and on Friday I leave for the West to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with my mother7 and father8. I find your letter this morning and am so sorry to miss you. I simply can’t find a spare minute between now the hour I take the train on Friday. I wonder where I shall find the energy to get through with all I have to do before then. I’ve given up a hundred things to get in this trip home9, and I must give up seeing you, too. Mother and father have set their hearts on it.Faithfully yours Willa Cather
