⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My dear Virginia:1

Thank you for letting me know something about your work in Chicago3. Your father4 sent me one of your letters, which gives me a pretty good idea of what you are doing. I know you will love being in a city again and having a chance to hear some music. I see Mary Virginia5 as often as I can – which is not nearly so often as I wish. I have been back in town2 less than two weeks, and am terribly driven trying to get settled for the winter. I will always be glad to hear from you when you have time to send me a line.

I send lots of love to you, my dear. Willa Cather
Miss Virginia Cather,1 Green Hall, University of Chicago, Chicago,3 Illinois. NEW YORK, N.Y. STA Y2 NOV 23 1934 11—PM
