Is in New York but soon heading West again. Hopes he was not offended by her letter and that they can meet in New York next winter to talk over their ideas. P. S.: Very proud to be listed with Robert Frost in the dedication of his book [Toward Standards: A Study of the Present Critical Movement in American Letters, New York: Farrar and Rinehart, 1930].

She and Knopf cannot allow reprinting something from the new book. Has he considered "The Diamond Mine"? Has heard a rumor that he wants a story that demonstrates a moral; stories ought not to demonstrate anything but an emotion or a response. Willa Cather
No one can see the sour side of things better than Elsie can. Her letter from Casper details her wonderful trip, but she includes a line saying that she is especially glad to make the visit since Roscoe is leaving soon and she likely won't see him for several years. Where is he going? Alaska? South America? Tahiti? Letters can be sent from Tahiti, as her own correspondence with James Norman Hall proves. Please inform her where he plans to go. Willie.
