My dear Miss Aaron1:

During the time3 that I am away, will you please have my mail4 gathered up about once a week, put in a seaworthy office envelope and sent to - Miss Sarah J. Bloom5, Room 1202, 7 Dey Street, New York City.2

In case any of the letters forwarded to Miss Bloom bring up questions which ought to be referred to the office, I have asked her to telephone you personally and lay the matter before you; and I will deeply appreciate it if you will give her your best advice.

Faithfully yours, Willa Cather
