⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ @ by hand Dear Mr. Keppel1;

I'd love to be caught—where a dozen or two good people were having tea together. I change my mind too often to speak to learned bodies. I don't like to be held responsible for the things I said in public ten years ago. You yourself know that one's opinions about any form of art are constantly changing.

Cordially Willa Cather
