I have just called Mr. Canby4 up to reprove him for his editorial bad manners, but he is not in town2. It never occurred to me that he would publish that article5 before the Atlantic6 review7 came out! I never heard of such doings! I sent it to him one Saturday, he publishes it the next, never sending me proofs. I sent it the moment it was written simply to get it off my desk, to keep it from getting lost in the mass of letters from soldiers8 which fill all my desks and tables, - I can't get them answered.
I'd of course have no objection to your using a re-print. I asked Canby's assistant
when I called up the office, and
h she said they
would have none.
Yes, I had seen the review9 of my book10 in the Atlantic, and liked it very much.Faithfully yours Willa Cather
