⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Kendall Falke1:

I am in New York2 again for a few weeks after a long absence in Europe3, and I find hundreds of letters awaiting me - so I cannot make long replies to any of them. But I want to send you my friendly wishesgreetings and to wish you every good luck. I am heartily glad you enjoyed LUCY GAYHEART4. I know what it means when one is feeling a little discouraged and happens upon a book which gives one a "hand-up".

Cordially yours, Willa Cather
