I am delighted that you liked the article4 about Mrs. Fields5. It was hastily done, but I think that no one who knew her could touch that subject at all without trying to remember her as she was.
I am so sorry you have been ill. I think these last few years have been hard on everyone. It seems to me that everything has gone wrong since the Armistice6. Why they celebrate that day with anything but fasts and sack-cloth and ashes, I don't know.
Thank you most heartily for your letter. I shall be so pleased if all Mrs. Fields' friends feel about that article as you do. Perhaps some day when you are quite well and I have a little leisure, you will want me to do something about Mrs. Fields and Miss Jewett7 for the Atlantic8.Very cordially yours, Willa Cather
