1-18-B ⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My Dear Blanche1;

I will arrive in New York3 February 2nd. These lovely snow storms are too fine to leave. There has not been such a wild winter out here2 for many years, and it makes me perfectly happy. When I go coasting with my little nephew4, aged nine, I feel just about twelve years old. I'm sorry to miss Myra Hess5 and Yehudi6, but I console myself with the Victrola and a house full of flowers. I see by the Chicago7 papers that "Shadows"8 is still selling well there.

My love to you and Alfred9 Willa Cather
