 I did not recover from the grip attack so as to be able to work as I anticipated this winter but hope for better luck in the future. I want to thank you for and congratulate the many who have been waiting anxiously for your last book that [illegible] come to them and is giving so much delight - as I hear of it on all sides in words of praise.By the way thinking that you would be in Hollywood.I left with Mrs Funk the copy of "Stickeen" in which you kindly wrote for me but failed to sign your name - which of course I want; so I shall look forward to having your autograph in it some day. May ask her to send it to youThe days here are now delightful and I am very reluctant to [illegible] California - but want to have ten days in Pasadena, and then spend as much time as I can with my invalid brother in Iowa CityThis town has just had a "revolution"
