Dear Virginia1;

I have had you so much in mind, dear child, but in the rush to get off to Grandmothers5 I've had no time for letter writing. I did have time, however to get for you the very prettiest scarf that Altmans' had, and I hope you'll like it very much. I start for California6 in one hour from now.

With heaps of love to you Willa Cather
