My dear Mr. Hendrick1:

I am sure that scrap book is somewhere around my old room3, probably in the closet opposite the desk. I vaguely remember having seen it, but have never had it up here. I am sure that if Miss Lewis4 looks she can find it for you.

I am glad you thought the April article5 amusing. I have rather got to the place where I can't see much that is amusing in anything. Science and this unnatural weather have been quite too much for me. I am more than anxious to see your Hughes6 article7, but the appeals I have sent to the office for an advance copy of the March number8 have not yet been answered.

Faithfully, Willa Cather
