NUMBER FIVE BANK STREET3 Dear Mr. Knopf1;

I am so glad to have your letter4, which solves all my perplexities. Please have the typewriter sent on to France5 as soon as possible, and charge it to my account.

My cabin on the Volendam6 is 112. If I am beset by any further difficulties I shall certainly call on you for aid. You seem to be able to give help in almost any direction, from a passport to a typewriter!

Faithfully yours Willa Cather

Will you be kind enough to hand the enclosed7 to Mr. Josephy8?
