To Mrs. George SeibelJan. 31, [1916?], from New YorkHarvard 

Is very pleased by her letter praising the book. Someone wanted to know if the piece-picture was made up. Mrs. Seibel will remember that it hung in the fitting room of a tailor for women. Except when hospitalized with blood poisoning, writing went steadily. Glad she believes in her.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #349]

Introduction will be nearly the last to be written. Will send back the dummy Miss Bishop left with her tomorrow. Looks good. Please remove the middle initial from her name on the title page. P.S.: Would be glad to have Miss Bishop again soon.  W. S. C.   [Stout #407]

To Mrs. George SeibelFeb. 2, [1919?], from New YorkWCPM 

Appreciates her nice letter about the book. Surprising that it is so well received, since it avoids all the usual ingredients of a story. Enjoyed Mr. Seibel's romance of prehistory [The Fall: Being a True Account of What Happened in Paradise, with a New Interpretation of Sacred History, Vindicating Snakes and Apples, 1918]. Looking forward to her visit.   Willa Cather   [Stout #449]


To Helen McNeny [in Red Cloud]June 15, [1920], from Paris, postcard ; WCPM 

It's cold and wet. Has a head cold, but enjoys Paris anyway.   Willa Cather   [Stout #508]
