⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Mason1:

Won't you send me a "sample" of what it is you want from me? Surely not a "bibliography" in the sense I understand; that would take a small sheet of paper, as I'm not a prolific writer. If you let me know exactly what you want I'll try to do it.

"The Bohemian Girl"3 is out of print—will be reprinted next winter4. You can find it in an old copy of McClures5, August 1912.

Sincerely yours Willa Sibert Cather

Have you "April Twilights"6?
