9–18–B ⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Alfred1;

I think it’s a splendid idea3 to print the illustrated edition of the "Archbishop"4 in place of the regular edition, if you can sell it at two dollars and a half. You have my hearty cooperation.

I don’t expect to be in New York5 before the middle of October, but if it gets very cold up here2 I may change my plans. So far the weather is glorious — I run away from work very often to enjoy it.

With love to Blanche6 and you Willa Cather
