Dear Mr. Knopf1:

Thank you for letting me know that you are still interested. The Japanese novel has not reached me yet. It is probably tied up in Customs, like everything else that comes into Canada3. No, you don't owe me any candy, but perhaps you will owe me a half-hour's conversation when I get back to New York4 next fall.

Very cordially yours Willa Cather. RECEIVED BY _____
JUL 7 1919
