F.G. Dear F. G.1

Oh no3, I'm not with Miss Lewis4! Left New York5 December 1st. I'm now on my way to Arizona6. Alas, I can't say a single good word in print7 for any book8! One break in that rule, and a whole cage full of tigers would be upon me. You know that.

Happy New Year W. S. C. Willa Cather
