⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Mr. Stimson1;

I like all the jackets3 so much that it is hard to choose4, but I prefer numbers 6, 3, 7, 2, in the order named. Please have some done like the original sample Mr. Ruzicka 5sent us, royal blue on a gray-blue paper, as I remember.

The weather here is glorious — the island2 is pink with lilacs and my hollyhocks are already in bud.

Faithfully always Willa Cather

I also like no. 4 and no. 9 very much, especially no. 4!
