Could you (in deepest confidence) tell me the nature of the cramping influences? I ask because I can help the boy5 a lot—he catches a hint as a good dog catches a scent. He is not self-conscious, and he is not vain. (He entirely forgets himself when he is interested.) If people have those two qualities I can always work with them and for them.
If you give me a tip it will help me when I see him next winter.Lovingly W.
I shall be here for a month at least.Mr. R. C. Cather1 Colusa3 California NORTHEAST HARBOR, MAINE2 June 30, 1944 630 PM From Willa Cather THE ASTICOU INN NORTHEAST HARBOR2, MAINE
