My mother3's health is giving us a good deal of anxiety just now, and I am going West the first of the year to stay with her for awhile. I do not feel that I could go to England4 while she is in her present condition. Please tell Mr. McClure5 so when you write.
I am getting on very well, but am still under treatment and have to be careful. The creosote tablets of which you write were very helpful in getting rid of my bronchitis. My father6 came on7 from Nebraska8 and stayed with me until I was strong enough to take up the routine of life again. Just now I have a slight cold and am keeping indoors, or I would call at the Wolcott and answer your note in person.
With affectionate greetings to you and Mr. McClureFaithfully yours Willa Cather
