⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ Dear Sara Teasdale1

I am so sorry! I've been down in the Virginia4 mountains and your letter had just reached me. I shall not be in New York5 before the first of November. You'll be back in New York this winter, I hope, and then you must let me know when you arrive and we will make a hard and fast engagement.

Faithfully Willa Cather
Miss Sara Teasdale1 Martha Washington Hotel New York5 PITTSBURGH, PA2 SEPT 30 1913 5 PM Willa Cather
