Dear Alfred1;

It was wonderfully kind of you4 to write Mr. Rousseau5 in behalf of our poor friends. I am sending Jan6 Phillipe Monod's7 address, suggesting that he go to see him if legal advice will help him. Of course if I knew all about their their business affairs I could advise them more intelligently. As it is, the only thing I can do is to see that Isabelle's8 expenses are paid for the summer. That will only be a matter of five hundred dollars or so. It has already been attended to9, and I shall postpone worrying until October.

Gratefully yours Willa Cather
