I am so glad to hear from you once more. Please destroy the letters4 you speak of, and thank you for writing me.
I consistently refuse all requests to do reviews and editorial articles because that kind of work cuts into one's time,— but this time I'll indulge myself and break my rule. We always have the feeling that we can handle our friends more appreciatively than anyone else could, and I feel so about this book5 on Mrs. Fields6. Please send me an early copy and I'll get the review7 to you in good time for December. I'm cleaning house, and could hardly make November.
Please read my new book8, don't just look into it! To me it's the story of one boy, whom I knew intimately from his childhood, and of his individual experiences as a soldier. It's the reviewers who will have it an answer to Dos Passos9. I never thought of such a thing. The book was done before his book10 was published.Cordially yours Willa Cather
