⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My dear Mr. Seibel1:

I am glad to say that I haven't any New York2 address at present. I go to New York several times each year, but I stop at a different hotel every time. Just at present I am on my way to visit my brother3 in Wyoming4. Anything you may wish to send me will eventually reach me if you will address it in care of - Mr. R. C. Cather, 1225 N. Center Street, Casper, Wyoming5. I am sorry to say that I have heard nothing of Francis Hill6 for many years.

I am delighted to hear that you and Mrs. Seibel7 are both well. As for me, I am well - whenever I am not in New York. The air there is so filled up with gasoline that a country bred person cannot get enough oxygen to breathe.

With best wishes always, Willa Cather
