To Margaret CroftsDec. 13, [1925?]LC 

Can't make any engagements during the Christmas season as three family members will be with her. To be honest, will not make any engagements until March. Was lazy during the summer but is working well now and must avoid interruptions. Spontaneous things are all right, but planned engagements clutter her calendar and her mind. Maybe they can meet for tea when she is out for a walk in Central Park?   Willa Cather   [Stout #810]


To Harry Brent Mackoy [attorney in Kenton County, Ky.]Nov. 11, 1926, from New YorkKentucky 

Is not related to Catherine D. Cather. Please inform the editor of Onward that she should not make such an assertion again.   Willa Cather   [Stout #859]


To Carrie Miner SherwoodJan. 16, 1930 from the Grosvenor, New YorkWCPM 

Enjoyed her long letter, but can't write back at length because leaving for Philadelphia, where an old friend is dying. P.S.: Jan. 17. Having to go to the funeral—Dr. Lawrence Litchfield, whom she knew in Pittsburgh.  Willie   [Stout #1001]


To Mabel Dodge LuhanJuly 1, [1930], from ParisBeinecke 

Her article on Lawrence captures him better than anyone else has done. So glad to hear that Jeffers liked Archbishop. Admires his "Roan Stallion" and "Night." Paris has deteriorated, more like New York now. Wouldn't have come except to see a seriously ill friend. Misses New Mexico and is tired of festivities.   Willa   [Stout #1014]


To Margaret CroftsJan. 2, [1931?], from the Grosvenor Hotel, New YorkLC 

Appreciates the green tomato condiment.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1031]


To Mabel Dodge LuhanJan. 17, [1931?], from New YorkBeinecke 

Very much admires Lorenzo in Taos [published in 1932; she must have seen manuscript or proof]. It equals the Buffalo section of Intimate Memories. Whether one agrees or not with the views of the people, they are well presented. Lawrence himself is caught better than anyone else has ever caught him, down to his giggle, or snicker. Country itself has its own life, and Tony's car takes on real significance. Edith away for a week, but read it, too. Is leaving for California before long. Mother about the same. Hopes to go to Mexico City before long.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1036]


To Sara TeasdaleMay 10, [1931], from Pasadena, Calif.Wellesley  typed transcription at NYPL.

Brought her letter along to California, where mother has been in sanitarium almost three years. Has been with her a lot of the time and has lost track of friends. Book just finished helped her hold together. Zoë has been a good friend. Please send a collection of selected poems. New poets don't let emotion blossom in their poems.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1052]


To Carrie and Mary Miner Aug. 4, [1933], from Grand MananWCPM 

Mary Virginia there vacationing. Wonderful weather. Worries Elsie won't keep up the yard at home. Some time wants to tell them about D. H. Lawrence, whom she knew well. Very fine writer, but full of extreme views.   Willie   [Stout #1118]


To Pat KnopfAug. 15, [1933], from Grand MananWellesley 

Sorry to hear his vacation was spent having his appendix out. But he will enjoy New Mexico more without one, when he gets to go. Walking a lot here on trails along the cliffs. Saw the Italian air fleet pass over this after-noon—hated their looks.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1188]


To Margaret Crofts,  Saturday [Mar. 31, 1934?] LC 

Sorry to hear of her father's death. Has been in splints for torn tendon that became inflamed. Has to see doctors twice a day. Will hope to talk with her soon.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1221]
