FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Please have a copy of "The Song of the Lark"4 mailed to me here2 as quickly as you can.

Please don't destroy the plates5 of Benda's6 illustrations for "Antonia"7. I am hoping that the next time I see you we can arrange some plan whereby you can restore them in future printings without financial loss.

Meanwhile, Happy New Year!

Yours Willa Cather
