What a trump you are to take my ailments4
so seriously. I don't think many people are as much concerned about 'em! But I'm not
going to have an operation——they've let me off again. I still have a sore spot, but
I'm more bored with doctors than anything else, and I think if once I get out of all
this and get west,
first first to Nebraska5 and then to Arizona6, that I'll be all right again. I think the horror of living
in New York2 hotels is partly what's been
the matter with me. I do hate it! I'll never be more than half alive until I have
place of my own again.
I wrote a long letter9 for "The Commonweal"10 about the Archbishop11, because the Catholics have been so broad-minded and handsome about this book. You might find it interesting as an honest account of my sources. (Date, Nov. 23)
One of these days I'll wire you that I'm starting for Chicago12, and until then goodnight and goodbye.Yours W.S.C.
