I needy[?] hardly say I was delighted to get your cable5! So many cablegrams arrived
that day that Ferrucio6, the Italian
man-of-all-work, thought another war had broken out. I hope the publicity will
stimulate sales and will be good for you as well as for me. Those High-Brows,
Heywood Brown7 & Co., will storm8 worse than
every ever and say it's one step more to Mary Rinehart9.
The Oliver typewriter which Mr. Samuel Knopf12 ordered sent13 to me has not arrived, and after a gay week in Paris14 I want to get to work and need a machine. Will you please find when it was shipped? If through some mistake it was not sent at all, I may have to buy one here, though they charge twice what Olivers sell for at home. If the machine was sent and is on the way will you please cable me to that effect as soon as you get this letter?
I had a wonderful week in Paris all alone. I am much better in health and am feeling very jolly over the Pulitzer prize. Please write me who the judges15 were. I couldn't have got it if Phelps16 was still one of the judges.
With warmest greetings from the Hambourgs17 and myselfYours Willa Cather
