Dear Alfred1;

Thank you for letting me know your flaws4. I have been working pleasantly these last few weeks. Perpetual rain is conducive to industry. By the early Spring5 I may have something6 that will mildly interest you. I hope so. I would like very much to please you.

Affectionately and faithfully Willa Cather 1946 SEP 28 AM 10:34
