New Canaan, Connecticut
23 September 1928
Margaret: Your small note was not enough but was a lot
better than none. Why not encourage youself to more?
Lots! Have a week. Total net result of the Summeróabout
two poems and several efforts. Now I am preparing for
three readings in N.S. in Oct.[.]1
Halifax &c. I dread it! Too long expected by that
friendly Province, and too fearful of revisiting old
and much loved places. Iíd rather not, but canít get
out of it. I hate things and places to
be the same, and all the old friends departed. Frightful.
I am to give a two weeks [sic] course at the Univ. of
January on my way to our Northwest. Very encouraging,
write now, like a good darling!
