Dear Miss Aaron1

Won't you ask the Mercury people3 please, please not to bother the Shattuck Inn4 any more?

I'm told the English reviews5 of the Archbishop6 are quite unusual. If any have come in will you send them to me here2? If none have come, perhaps in the next letter to Heinemann7 you can ask him to send them. I used to get all English reviews through an English Clipping agency8, but since I’ve had no address9 all second class matter has gone astray in the post.

Sincerely Willa Cather 2 389
