To Elizabeth Shepley SergeantJuly 6, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; PM 

Sending an item from the New York Evening Post that casts doubt on accuracy of her article. With [Josephine] Goldmark, is taking it up with the Child Labor Commission. Wonderful Sergeant got this notice. Still wondering what she thinks of the workmen's museum idea. Can pay $200 for the article plus $50 toward travel expenses.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #181]


To Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant,  Sunday [pm. June 4, 1911] , from New YorkPM 

Thanks for the box of candy. Someone from Hull House was at the office and said Miss Wyatt is obsessed with white slavery these days. Too bad she can't see anything amusing in humanity. Miss McClung to be in town soon and Miss Goldmark not long after. Wishes Sergeant could be there to meet Isabelle, who also dislikes people obsessed with social reform.   Willa Cather   [Stout #195]


To Pauline Goldmark,  n.d. [Mar. 6, 1912?] UVa 

Sorry she has had bad news. Mr. McClure turned up unexpectedly last week. Leaving for Pittsburgh tomorrow. Elsie Sergeant saved her sanity while she [Cather] was in Boston.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #215]


To Mrs. C. F. LambrechtAug. 21, [1935], from Italy, postcard ; WCPM 

Is in the Italian Alps, on the Austrian border. Sends love to her, Lydia, and Pauline.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1016]


To Josephine GoldmarkMar. 3, 1931PM 

Had hoped to have a talk with her, but must rush off to California. Liked her book [Pilgrims of '48: One Man's Part in the Austrian Revolution of 1848, and a Family Migration to America, 1930]. Enjoyed the presentation of the Brandeis family as well as the Goldmarks. Has enjoyed knowing immigrant families in Nebraska and seeing how their lives flowered.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1043]


To Dr. Merores [?]Jan. 16, 1933UVa 

Sorry to hear he began a German translation of Death Comes for the Archbishop without her agreement or a publisher. Arranging for translations is very complicated and time-consuming. Mr. Knopf handles it all for her. Interesting that he knows Mrs. Brandeis. Once knew Judge Brandeis fairly well, and his sisters Pauline and Josephine Goldmark are dear friends. Can't help find a publisher for his translation.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1150]


To Pauline GoldmarkApr. 18, [1933], from 570 Park AvenueWCPM 

Could she and Josephine [Goldmark] come to tea on Saturday the 22nd at five?   Willa Cather   [Stout #1172]


To Mrs. C. F. Lambrecht, Lydia, and PaulineJan. 19, [1935?]WCPM 

Appreciates the quilt they made her. Recognizes many of the flowers on it. Among them, lilies-of-the-valley, crocuses, and peonies are her favorites. But almost likes the solid squares better, because of the quilting.   Willie Cather   [Stout #1249]


To Lydia [Lambrecht]Dec. 14, 1938WCPM , transcription

Sending a Christmas box to her mother tomorrow. Douglass's death left her ill for quite a while, but can now do Christmas shopping. Sending some wool cloth to be made up into a dress for mother. Sending hoods for her and Pauline, very stylish; also some wool gloves and scarves. Hopes they won't mind making up the dress.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1428]


To Elizabeth Shepley SergeantNov. 27, 1940PM 

Sending an advance copy of Sapphira and the Slave Girl but can't autograph it because of strained tendon of right thumb. Please give her best wishes to Pauline and Josephine Goldmark.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1507]
