My dear Elizabeth McCausland: I have just wired you.- Had to. Your work - Marin article - the O'Keeffe rotogravure - so perfect and I wanted you know at once my feeling. - And how badly I needed what you gave me - just this morning your work in the Republican  -  its spirit - the work of an artist - real integrity in these days of ever increasing sloppiness & lack of all that's really fine. Together with your gift - for gift it is - comes a letter from Brett - Taos snowbound - a grand letter clean as the snow - enclosing a few of Laurence's last

Transcription Notes:
After much searching, I think this is "rotogravure" in hyphenated form. It was a type of printing in newspapers at the time this letter was written, and O'Keeffe had gravure prints. I believe this is Dorothy Brett who moved to the D. H. Lawrence Ranch near Taos, New Mexico. I also think this is John Marin. ---------------
