Dear F. G.1

Will you please send me a line here telling me the name and address of Dr. Eastman's3 cousin4 who is in charge5 of the Jewett6 estate? A letter from her, forwarded by my secretary7, was lost in the avalanch of Christmas mail.

I am having a wonderful time in my father's8 house9 in my own little town. Please send me a reply as soon as possible, for I shall not be here long.

Happy New Year! Willa Cather
