The title page3 is excellent, but the dedication page4 is not satisfactory—I don't think that sort of type5 appropriate for anybody's mother! By tomorrow I hope to be able to send you a proof of the dedication, set by a very expert man, and I beg you to see that your printers6 follow it as closely as possible. If you will look at the dedication page7 in "My Ántonia8" you will get an idea of the kind of thing I want—it is not very good, but there is some delicacy about it.Very truly yours Willa Cather
