"Little French Mary"3 must be wandering about the New York4 Post Office—she hasn't shown up5, nor has my notice to send more postage come. I'd like to have her here, because I have more time than usual to read.
Please ask your business department to hold my September check until I write for it—I'll be here for several weeks, after that in Jaffrey N.H.6 for a time. I stopped to see you between trains and found a low eating house in your stead.7 Where are you?
If you are anywhere near Park Street, would you be friendly-kind enough to drop in at Mary Elizabeth's8 and have a pound of mixed caramels sent to me here? I'll stop to see you on my way to Jaffrey. Is there ever to be a collection9 of Miss Guiney's10 verse? I could do a good deal toward making it here, on odd afternoons when I'm lying out on the cliffs.Faithfully yours Willa Cather
