Dear Mr. Braithwaite1:

In the first place, let me tell you how much I would like to have the book of your own verse you are kind enough to offer to send me.

I have written to a friend4 of mine in Pittsburg5, in whose house a good many of my personal effects are stored, and she will send you a copy of "April Twilights"6 within a few days.

Indeed, I should be very happy to have any verse of mine included in the anthology which your friend is making up.

I am sorry that I bothered7 you about the review8 on the History of Christian Science9, but I shall be very grateful to you, indeed, for taking the trouble to send me a copy of it.

Very cordially yours, Willa Sibert Cather Mr. William Stainley Braithwaite, 59 Museum Street, Cambridge, Mass.10
