My Dear Mr. Mathiessen1;

I would always be glad to assist in any effort to make Miss Jewett5's work better known in our unappreciative country6. My letters and papers are all in New York7, and I shall not be there before December. The review8 of which Mr. Howe9 spoke appeared in the Saturday Literary Review of the N. Y. Evening Post10, first page, a few weeks after Mr. Howe's book11 was published.

Very sincerely yours Willa Cather
