Dear Will Edson1;

Please discontinue my Argus3 for the present. I have given up my apartment on Bank street4 and put my things in storage. I am going to travel for a year before I take a new apartment. I didn't get in to see you before I left home5 because Father6 was sick and everything was hurried at the end of my visit.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
