xRef Dear Alfred1;

I’ll be delighted if you and Pat3 can stop to see me4. I am almost alone in the Inn5 now—about half-a-dozen left, but a crowd for week-ends. So far only two hard rains, so the walking has been grand. Do stop on the first of November if possible.

I am expressing the limit pages6 back to Mr. Jacobs7 this afternoon. Please thank him for the pains he took to make the sending-back so simple and convenient. Bullet’s8 book9 has not arrived yet, but will probably get in tomorrow.

Devotedly to you both Willa Cather RECEIVED
OCT 20 1936 AM
