F.G. c/o Jan Hambourg3 19, RUE DE SÈVRES
Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

This is my french address. I sailed the first of April, when you were abroad, and expect to be here with the Hambourgs4 until next winter.

What about that volume of Miss Guiney's5 poems? Are you6 going to let me do the selecting of them, or no? I'm rather far away, but I'd love to do it for you—for her, really.

Of course I am very much pleased about the Pulitzer prize7—a rain of pleasant cablegrams blew in upon us on the 14th8.

Isabelle joins me in warmest regards to you and Mrs. Greenslet9.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
For your Secretary.

I see that "Antonia"10 is still behaving well.

Will you please send two copies of "O Pioneers!"11 and at to me at this address and charge to my account.

Mail sent to me in care of Houghton Mifflin should be forwarded to Bank Street12 as usual, not to my Paris2 address.

W. S. C.
