Dear Mrs. Stanfield1:

Since I telephoned you I've had a week in the house with a stiff neck—many flowers, consequently many notes to write. Yesterday, my regular day at home, I was able to see friends, and today am out for the first time. I am looking forward to having a little visit with you soon. But a week of illness puts one terribly behind in a New York2 winter.

With affectionate greetings to you Willa Cather
Mrs. Stanfield1 "The Wyoming" Seventh Ave + 55th St New York2 NEW YORK,N.Y.STA.C2 MAR 3 1924 1130 AM
