I was delighted to have your Christmas card. The Bokums3 have a long memory.
I had a very interesting summer at Northeast Harbor, Maine4, and got a good deal of work done. I wasn't working hard, but just enough to keep pleasantly alive. My right hand5, which I hurt four years ago, as you may remember, still bothers me very much from time to time. It seems to me that whenever I reach a very interesting place in my work, the hand breaks down on me and I have to tie it up in its brace for three weeks - or six! Otherwise I have been well, and I manage to get something to eat, though never enough!Always affectionately, Willa Cather
