6 Dear Alfred1;

I am delighted3 with the Times4 ad of March 185—It is exactly the kind I wanted.

My mother6 has gone to California with one of my brothers7, and I am staying on here to get the house8 in order and arrange business matters with my father’s9 executor10. I expect to be in New York11 in two weeks from this date and will let you know as soon as I arrive there. Thank you for getting my income tax extension12. I hope Blanche13 is quite well by this time, and I look forward to seeing you both.

Faithfully Willa Cather
