Six weeks ago I sprained the big tendon of my left wrist, didn't go to a doctor, got up a nice inflammation, and now for four weeks have been in splints. My left hand is useless, and my right hand is so over-worked that I am forbidden to write at all. Awkward for me and Mr. Knopf3! Thank God Yehudi Menuhin4 and his dear family5 have been in town2 most of the time, and they have done so much to make the time pass pleasantly.
The check to the Guild8, and to you all my love and Easter greetings.Willie Mrs. E. A. Creighton1 Red Cloud9 Nebraska NEW YORK, N.Y. STA Y2 MAR 29 1934 2-PM enter [illegible]
