⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Alfred1;

The bottle3 you sent me yesterday will surely make a safe traveling4 companion. Thank you for that—and for so many kind things! You have certainly stood by me through this tedious and rather absurd ordeal5. I shant forget it.

Yours W. S. C.
From Willa Cather Mr. Alfred A. Knopf1 501 Madison Avenue New York City2 NEW YORK, N. Y.2 SEP 21 1942 10-PM Personal 1942 SEP 28 AM 9:36
