⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Mr. J[?] FG Dear F.G.1

No, please3. By no means let Antonia4 go on the air. Thank you for letting me know about this proposition, as I have a strong feeling against it.

Isabelle McClung Hambourg5 died yesterday, in Sorrento, Italy6. I need scarcely tell you that this another great change in life for me. It is only four months since my closes brother Douglass7, the one closest to me in my family, died of a heart attack, in California8. They were the two people dearest to me.

Faithfully Willa Cather
