F.G. ⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

A Miss Sylvia Bates3, who lives near me here, has probably written asking your permission to use some ten thousand words of "Antonia"4 for a text book to be published by Scribners. I promised I'd write you that I don't object - and I don't, but, of course, I cannot urge you to break any rule of the house5 in such matters.

A Happy New Year to you. Please let me know when you are in town2 sometime.

Very cordially yours, Willa Cather
