Dear Mr. Spier1:

Where When you send the copy3 to the printers4 please write them clearly to put proper spacing before and after all dashes — you remember I showed you on the galleys5 how they had run dashes up against the last letter of words. If they set it right in the first part place, it will save trouble. There are lots of dashes in the last part! I'm delighted with the double-leaded6 page.

YoursWilla Cather
