⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My dear Mr. Howe1:

First, I want to thank you for the book3 on the Harvard men killed in the War. I have not had time to read it yet, but I look forward to doing so.

And secondly, I want to thank you for asking me to come to Boston4 to speak. I hope I may some time.; but this winter I am calling everything of that kind off.

Will you please tell Mr. Sedgwick5 for me that his letter got lost in the Christmas mail, so I am not able to answer it properly. If I ever get time to do an article on the subject you and I were talking of, I would like to submit it to him, however.

Please remember me warmly to Mrs. Howe6 and give my heartiest love to Mary Jewett7 when you happen to see her again.

Cordially yours Willa Cather Cather
