To [Josephine Frisbie?] Mar. 16, [1939?]WCPM 

Glad to hear the Amboy mill is still running. A reassurance that reality persists.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1441]


To Josephine FrisbieSept. 27, 1940WCPM 

So glad to receive pictures of the Amboy Mill. Very reassuring to know it is still there. Glad to get her opinion of the park in Red Cloud, which sounded rather awful in the newspaper. Picture of her father just as she remembered him. Mother was very fond of both of Josephine's parents. Often thinks mother would have been happier spending last years in Red Cloud, but Douglass was thankful to have her in California and actually enjoyed her company, even after she could no longer speak.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1492]


To [ Josephine Frisbie? ]1942, Christmas card ; WCPM 

Wishing a happy, though it can't be merry, Christmas to her friends at the mill.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1603]


To Josephine FrisbieApr. 6, 1944WCPM 

Sorry to be so slow answering her letter dated December 27. Was reminded of it by notice of Charlie Platt's death in the Red Cloud newspaper. Glad she was able to visit him last summer. Wonders if the Amboy mill is still in operation. Still treasures the pictures of it she sent four years ago. Has hoped to get back to Red Cloud but doesn't feel up to the emotional jolt. Has she read John Hersey's A Bell for Adano? A very good book, shows integrity.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1664]


To [ Lora Frisbie ]Dec. 12, 1944WCPM
