FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

Miss Cather is having a rather painful time with her hand. You may remember that her right hand3 gave her a great deal of trouble several years ago. She was working very hard on a most congenial subject and was probably driving her right hand too hard, for it suddenly collapsed. She has been overwhelmed with Christmas mail of a very personal nature, but probably within a week or so she will feel like taking up her business correspondence4.

Very truly yours, Sarah J. Bloom5 Secretary
