Dear Mr Stimson1

Out here2 a dozen or more "Archbishops"4 have been sent me for autograph that are not bound in green with the paper label, but in brown cloth, title stamped in red on the front.5

Alfred Knopf6 promised me that the green binding with paper label should be the uniform binding for all my books after first publication of the Archbishop. This “sport” seems to be an early printing, but I wonder why? I’ll be in New York7 two weeks from now.

Cordially Willa Cather
