⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ FG [illegible] My dear F. G.1:

I think3 Mr. Rogers4 should use his own discretion in placing the explanatory note for the Collected Edition5 - that is, if you mean6 the Autograph Edition. I am not so sure about its position in what you call the Library Edition. Perhaps the Library Edition and Autograph Edition are now the same: in that case I would submit to his judgment. I think I wrote you that I have a badly sprained right thumb7, and just at present my right hand is done up in splints8, so that I cannot even sign a check - nice situation to find oneself in at Christmas time!

I have seen very few of the notices as yet. If you have Dorothy Canfield9's Book-of-the-Month-Club Bulletin10, I wish you would send it11 to me.

Faithfully yours, WILLA CATHER By S. J. Bloom I have sent it to her
with our love. Apparently
Blanche & Alfred are sleeping
together at the switch.[?]
