The Grosvenor

My dear Mr. Greenslet1:

I hope you will contine of the same mind3 about not getting out a cheap edition of "Antonia"4. The German edition5, by the way, I think very attractive, and when you next write Engelhorns I hope you will tell them so.

I am awfully sorry I was not back2 yet when you called6 up the Grosvenor7. I am now expecting to spend Christmas in Red Cloud8, but will be back soon afterward, and letters addressed to me at the Grosvenor will reach me at all times. for the present.

Very cordially yours, Willa Cather
