FG ⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

I will be glad to hear3 the report from Dun & Bradstreet, but I doubt whether the offer made would be worth our while. I am quite sure that it is not put forth by the backers of the six-volume translation, of which I recently wrote4 you. On the other hand, I doubt whether it would directly conflict with that project. I will think it over when I get the reference from Dun & Bradstreet.

Hastily yours, WILLA CATHER By Sarah J. Bloom5 Secretary

P.S. Miss Cather's right hand6 has been hurt and she is, therefore, unable to sign this letter herself.
