⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Canby1;

Indeed I know Charlton street—I once went house-hunting there. I am going out of town2 until after Christmas. I will write you as soon as I return and I hope you will find time to come in and have a cup of tea with me. I wonder if you are the "friend on the Post3" of whom my friends the Brewsters4 spoke to me in Naples5 six weeks ago?

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
