LA FONDA HOTEL, SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO. My Dear Mrs. Mitchell1:

I’m travelling and simply can’t answer letters just now. Please excuse me. I hasten to tell you, though, that I won’t be giving any lectures next winter.

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
"La Fonda"
At the End of the Trail
Picturesquely built in the Spanish
Pueblo type, by the faith and vision of
Santa Fe; luxuriously, beautifully furn-
ished after the Spanish period; a hotel de
luxe that is different; of rare, artistic
beauty and historic interest, with every
modern comfort and convenience. From
its restful rooms the casements look out
upon the romantic old Plaza of Santa fe.
This hotel is a home for the tourist,
commercial people, and permanent guests.
Plenty of rooms with private baths—
telephone, hot and cold water in every
room. You can make no mistake when
you stop at La Fonda—European Plan.
Excellent Cafe service.
RATES—ONE PERSON
$2.00—Up
