Dear Miss Aaron1;

Please send me one dozen of those booklets3 that we send out to clubs4, with their envelopes;

  • Half a dozen sheets of carbon paper;
  • Three hundred sheets of ordinary typewriter5 paper, more or less like that on which I am writing this note.

Please send these things all in one package, by parcel post, not registered, and then I will not have to go to the customs office, which is at the other end of the Island2.

The World6 is coming regularly now,7 thanks to your kind intervention. Everything here is lovely now.

Faithfully yours Willa Cather Sent 8/5/29.
