Cather Dear Mr. Knopf1:

I hope you are reconciled3 to "One of Ours"4. I feel more and more that it is the only way out for us. Fanny Butcher5 thought it good.

Please send a cut cut, suitable for newspaper publication, of the photograph6 of me that you used in your catalogue7, to Mrs. Warren Blackwell8 3618 Farnham St Omaha, Neb.9 And label it with my name. They10 want a "dressy" picture and want it soon.

Cordially W. S. C.
