If Mr. Topham4 and Joe Pavelik5 have paid their interest6, will you please send it to me as soon as possible? If they have not yet paid it, could you without inconvenience advance me that amount? If not I shall have to borrow from the bank to run my house7 until my next royalties are due, March 1st. I am going into the Roosevelt Hospital in February for an operation8 and do not want to be too short of money at that time.
I have a vague impression that perhaps you did advance me the Joe Pavelik interest before I left home3, thought it was not due until December. Did you?
Please tell Mother9 I will write her soon, but I have been far from well and have had an unusual number of worries and perplexities.With love to you both Willie Mr. C. F. Cather1 Red Cloud3 Nebraska NEW YORK, N. Y.2 JAN 30 1922 12—M [missing]Cather
