Dear Mr. Stimson1;

Please urge the Plimpton Press4 to make these corrections on the plates5 now, so they will be ready for the next printing. There will certainly be printings for some time to come, as the Catholic schools have taken the book up vigorously, and I will never consent to a text-book edition.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather
