FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

Please ask your business office to send me a statement of the amount they have paid me in royalties4 during the fiscal year ending January 1st.

As a letter5 sent from the President of Princeton6 sent in care of Houghton Mifflin was forwarded to Pasadena7, I gather you do not know I am here2. I will be here until February 16, perhaps a little longer, and if you are in town before that time I wish I might see you. Please ask your mailing department to forward letters to me here until further notice.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
