I went to Dr. Thurber4 this morning and liked him very much. Thank you for his name.

The "Lost Lady"5 is ready—please send for it tomorrow, Friday, if convenient, after two oclock in the afternoon.

Please ask Mr. Joseffy6 to get the revise proofs of "April Twilights"7 to me as soon as possible. We8 hoped to get them this week.

Dr. Thurber advised me to keep indoors in an even temperature for some days. Could you come in for tea tomorrow, Friday, afternoon? There will be no one else her.

Yours W. S. C.ather
