I am so glad to have your letter from Chicago3 and I beg you to get at4 Mr. Lorrimer5 as soon and as vigorously as you can. I have been laid up with a bad attack of neuritis and will have all I can do to full my engagement to speak6 at Omaha7 on the 29th of this month, next Saturday.
Do you know that your publicity department utterly failed to help me out on the Omaha
engagement? No plates or photographs8
from your office were ever received by the Fine Arts Committee. Yesterday photographs9 appeared in all the Omaha
Sunday papers, but they were some my mother took out of frames and sent up in
response to last despairing telephone calls
the Omaha women. Today10 two plates
arrived here, when i it is quite too late to used them, and of course they should have been sent to Omaha, not to me. Seeing
that your publicity people had two months warning, I think their results are
discouraging, don't you11?
I expect to get to New York12 about the eigth of the month. I hope there will be some copies of the "Bright Medusa"13 on sale in Omaha this week. H. and M.14 have written me that there will be a display of their books there. I have been in bed for a week and am behind in everything.Hastily yours Willa Cather
