Dear Mr. McClure1;

I got back from New Haven4 with a bad bronchitis and no voice. I've been in bed ever since, but am now getting over my bad throat.

Can you dine with us5 here on Saturday night March 18, at a quarter to seven? It will be wonderful to see you again!

Yours always Willa Cather

How nice of you to bring me a lovely neck-tie!
