Cather Dear Mr. Birnbaum1:

Miss Cather has been called out of town2 by illness3 in her family. I expect she will return to New York within a few days, and your letter will be brought to her attention promptly.

Very truly yours, Sarah J. Bloom 4Secretary Mr. Martin Birnbaum The American Academy of Arts and Letters 633 West 155th Street New York City
