I cannot tell you how happy it made me to see you again on last Friday afternoon. The sight of you awakened such a torrent of happy memories and stirred in me such a flood of gratitude, that I kept asking myself, "Why have I let such a long time go by without seeing my Chief?" I want to see you again, before I go away for the summer, to tell you all the whys. For the last ten years I have been in New York City2 so little- - so many unexpected things have happened in my family, sad things and pleasant things. I want to tell you all about it.
Where, I wonder, can I meet you? Miss Lewis3 and I still keep our apartment at 570 Park Avenue4, southwest corner of 63rd Street and Park Avenue. Like many of my friends, I have no maid - when I am out there is no one even to answer the telephone. I suppose women are not permitted to call on you at your club, but if you can drop me a line telling me where I could call on you, I would be glad to come. Or, if you can come to see me here at our apartment, I will always be here to receive you if you can let me know beforehand the day and the hour. I shall not be happy until I have a talk with you and try to clear myself of negligence.Affectionately and, in heart, always faithfully yours, Willa Cather
