My Dear Mrs. Westcott1;

I had already acquired two of Mr. Wescott's3 interesting maps, but it will be none the less pleasant to have one directly from you on that account. The fact that I ordered the map as soon as I saw it at Whale Cove cottage4 will testify to my appreciation of it. Thank you for your kind thought in sending this on.

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
