I'm just back from Chicago5 and have time for a word only.
Would you like to come to New York2 as my guest for the Christmas Vacation? I would put you up at the Smith Club6, and we could do things together when I had time. I won't have much time, but I don't want to have your last Holiday Vacation slip by without a visit to New York. Mary Virginia7 would give you as much time as she could, and perhaps you would have some friends at the Smith Club. I am rushing this line off to you so that you won't tie up with other engagements if you would rather come to New York.With love to you, my dear, Willa Cather Miss Virginia Cather1 Baldwin House Northampton3 Mass.
