⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Mr. Sidney Florance1 Peoples Webster County Bank Red Cloud, Nebraska3
Dear Sidney Florence:

I don't know whether you are at home yet or not, but will you please send me a bank statement (I don't want to overdraw, you know) at the end of the year. And please send me a new checkbook - one with a stiff back, if you have such. The limp-backed ones so easily get lost among my many papers.

Sincerely yours, Wishing you a Happy New Year Willa Cather mailed 12/30/46.
