To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  Sunday [June 14, 1931] , from New YorkUVt 

Will go to Princeton tonight to receive honorary degree. Only feeling toward Shadows on the Rock is appreciation that it carried her through difficult time. Tried to capture reality of old life in Quebec. Jacques modeled on a nephew who still remembers how she pulled him uphill on his sled during the winter before father died, when he was five.   Willa   [Stout #1054]


To Zoë AkinsMar. 16, [1937], from New YorkHuntington 

Is in bed with lumbago and also is not writing letters because starting a new book. In spite of both of those things, wanted to write and say how much she liked her poems. Keep sending those, not plays written by idiots [ref. to Totheroh]. Hope it's nicer in California than in New York, where it's very cold for March. P.S.: Likes Tovarich [a play by Jacques Deval] very much.  Willa   [Stout #1359]
