F.G. W. S Cather Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

I quite agree with you3 about not getting out a dollar edition of Antonia4, and I am quite willing to put "O Pioneers!"5 in the dollar edition, provided you will still keep the regular edition of that book in stock. The "regular readers" will still want the regular edition.

I shall be here2 until February 12th, after that you had better address me in care of Knopf6.

Hastily Willa Cather
