Cleaning and settling a house3 that has been closed for nearly four years is no joke! But it's done, at last, and a new shingle roof put on the house in the bargain! Mother4's dear little maid5 has come on from Colorado6 to keep house for me, and she is as good as gold.
Please ask Miss Rubin7 to send me two copies of "Shadows8", one copy of the Modern Library "Archbishop9", and a copy of that new book on Russia10, "Red Bread11". I want them all for Christmas—there's plenty of time to get them here2.
What news of "Shadows?"With love Willa Cather
