Willa Cather Dear Mr. Howe1;

It is a pleasure to hear from you again, and to know that you, too, recall those old days3 with pleasure. Yes, the younger generation do assert that they admire that New England4 group,—but I seriously doubt if they know what they are talking about!

With all the good wishes of the season,

Faithfully yours Willa Cather.
