Dear Mr. Sedgwick1:

I am very pleased to hear from you and to know that you still remember me. I am rugged in health these days, and am working on a new novel3 after a nine months' vacation in France4 last year. I still live in New York5 at no. Five, Bank street6, though I am usually there for only a few months in the winter. I hope I may see you sometime when you are in New York, as I seldom go to Boston7—haven't been there, indeed, for years. The Atlantic8 in the only American magazine I read. How good Archer9's article10 was last month!

Sincerely yours Willa Cather
