Miss Margaret Moody1, Secretary to Mr. Ferris Greenslet3, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2 Park Street, Boston, Massachusetts4.
Dear Miss Moody:

I wish5 to ascertain whether final corrected proofs of THE SONG OF THE LARK6 have been sent to Cassell and Company. They write, under date of July 5th, that have received a set of galleys, but they have no means of knowing whether they are the final corrected proofs or not. I would greatly appreciate your kindness if you would make sure and advise me whether proofs have been sent them from which they can set.

Very truly yours, Sarah J. Bloom7 Secretary to Willa Cather Page proofs were sent April 13th. See your letter. But PLD doesn't know definitely now whether they were final corrected proofs or not! No record of any galleys sent by any one. Branch says were final proofs
