⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Miss Aaron1;

Will you please mark this letter3 for a fast boat and mail it for me? All letters sent abroad from here go via Quebec4, on the C.P.R boats5, which are very slow.

It’s so cool here I can hardly imagine New York6—But I hope you have better weather by this time.

Faithfully Willa Cather Berengaria
