⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Sanborn;1

I am so sorry your letter missed me,- I was at Cos Cob3 for the week-end. I haven't had time to hear any music since I got back4, except a few performances of the German Opera people5. But now that my house6 is running smoothly and I've answered the three hundred and some letters that awaited me, I hope I can signal you for dinner or tea sometime soon, and that you can come. Mme. Fremstad7 is in Egypt8!

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
