Dear Mr. Seibel1;

You seem to have been in New York2 during the one week in the winter I spend3 in Philadelphia4. I’m awfully sorry I missed you—I particularly wanted to hear about your trip abroad. Please drop me a line and give me your Pittsburgh5 address—I wanted it this fall to send you a copy of “My Mortal Enemy”6, which I had a premonition you would understand—and that most people wouldn’t!

With friendliest regards to you both7 Willa Cather
