Just a line to tell you that my nephew, Thomas Auld3, lives in Red Cloud, Nebraska4 - whither I am fleeing at once to spend Christmas and New Years with my parents5. I am so sorry this means that I won't be here when you are in New York2 after Christmas. I would love to have an hour with you here at my own place6. I am so sorry to hear that Mrs. Whicher7 has been under a cruel strain.
It was ever so kind of you to suggest my coming for the Clyde Fitch8 lectures, and it might really be possible for me to do it9 - if not next year, two years from that time, when Tom would surely be with you. I think he could go to you next year, if his father10 did not want him to graduate with his high school class.Very sincerely yours, Willa Cather
