NUMBER FIVE BANK STREET3 Dear Mr. Knopf1:

The proofs4 have at last arrived from the West. Thanks for the English edition5 of "The Bright Medusa"6. It's not half so pretty as the book you made. I send back the cutting7 from the Saturday Review8, which I like9 very much.

I am gradually getting caught up with the novel, and you'll hear from me soon.

Hastily W. S. C Cather
