To Mrs. George WhicherOct. 16, [1925], from Shattuck Inn, Jaffrey, N.H.PM 

Niece Mary Virginia Auld is a freshman at Smith. Could Mrs. Whicher get in touch with her some time? The boys would enjoy her. Came here to work after a wonderful summer in New Mexico living like a Zane Grey character. Wishes Mrs. Whicher could have attended the birthday dinner for Robert Frost.   Willa Cather   [Stout #797]


To Mrs. George WhicherDec. 21, 1925PM 

Enjoyed visit. So happy she has extended hospitality to Mary Virginia. Is enclosing an irritating letter from an English teacher. Merry Christmas.   Willa Cather   [Stout #814]


To Mrs. George Whicher,  Sunday [pm. Dec. 28, 1925] PM 

What wonderful cakes she sent! Has enjoyed them with tea. But has enjoyed even more the picture of the children.   W. S. C.   [Stout #815]


To Harriet MonroeOct. 27, 1926, from Jaffrey, N.H.Chicago 

Appreciates her sending [Fanny] Butcher's review, which shows a grasp of what the book means. It's true, as other reviewers have said, that we are our own worst enemies, but that isn't what the book is saying. Eyes are better.   Willa Cather   [Stout #856]


To Alice Corbin HendersonNov. 8, 1927LincCity 

Gives permission to use "Spanish Johnny" but only as printed in April Twilights, not the garbled version in the anthology edited by Harriet Monroe. Is glad she likes Archbishop. Many people don't because they find it defies classification.   Willa Cather   [Stout #908]


To Mrs. George Whicher,  Tuesday [pm. Nov. 8, 1927] , from Grosvenor Hotel, New YorkPM 

Appreciates the invitation to visit, but cannot. Is going to Nebraska soon. Also, Edith Lewis's mother ill. Enjoyed being in Jaffrey during the fall but has not been well lately. Needs to get away from New York. Enjoyed writing Archbishop, but now that it is out there are too many events and letters. Enjoys letters from Catholics, however. Nephew is enjoying Amherst.   Willa Cather   [Stout #910]


To Mr. George Whicher and Mrs. Harriet WhicherJan. 1, [1929], from New YorkPM 

Meant to spend a few weeks at the Lord Jeffrey after the holidays, but mother has suffered a stroke. Will have to go to California soon, which means abandoning work on which she had enjoyed making a start. Even worse, has to go to Long Beach. San Francisco would be all right. It will be another bad year. Has a little gift for them.   Willa Cather   [Stout #956]


To George F. Whicher,  Friday [prob. Nov. 21, 1930] PM 

Had to leave Jaffrey to receive a medal as one of this good-looking group. Probably won't be able to get back this year. Enjoyed his note and hopes they can have a brief visit in New York before he sails.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1026]


To Mrs. George WhicherApr. 1, [1933], from 570 Park Avenue, New YorkPM 

Sorry to have missed her. Was away in Atlantic City recovering from bronchitis. Returned just today. Has been busy getting settled in the new apartment. Is confiding her address, which she gives out to very few.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1171]


To George WhicherApr. 8, 1933 [error?; pm. May 8, 1933], from New YorkPM 

Could he exert his influence to help her get two rooms at the Lord Jeffrey in Amherst for June 17, 18, and 19? Will be there to accept an honorary degree from Smith at the commencement when Virginia graduates. Realizes they would invite her to stay with them, but she doesn't visit friends— especially when receiving honorary degrees! Also, Miss Lewis will be with her. If the Lord Jeffrey is impossible, a room in Springfield would be all right. Hopes to see them.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1176]
