Dear Mr. Crowell1;

Go right ahead with Mr. Wittwer3 and have the windmill put in. I remember Mr. Wittwer well and I know he is a good man. I was at home4 when he put drilled the well on your place.

I am taking care of friend5 who has been very sick6 for a week and am getting her off to a hospital today. So this letter must be a short one.

Sincerely Willa Cather
