To Mr. George Seibel and Mrs. Helen SeibelAug. 9, 1897 from Red Cloud, Nebr.WCPM 

Has received Erna's picture. Is impressed that Mr. Seibel has acquired a complete set of Hugo, but they will envy her "Thistle" Stevenson. Has not yet retrieved manuscripts from Axtell and Orr. Beware of Christians! But is attending church with her family. Leaving on hunting trip today. Has a cold.    Willa Cather   [Stout #41]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergMar. 4, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Mr. McClure hopes he will do some articles on Germany while there. Especially interested in something on German railroads. Hopes to see him in Boston in two weeks.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #170]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergMar. 14, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Mr. McClure will be in the office March 25 to April 5. Please stop by if in town. Will be in Boston April 6–14 and could see him then. Glad for him to write whatever he wishes about Germany. Perhaps the schools?   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #172]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergApr. 27, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Can offer a four article series, one dealing with German education, one on municipal government, and two others on whatever he thinks important about German civilization. Series title might be "When I Came Home." Will run in four consecutive numbers. All right to do something on German theater for a literary magazine such as Atlantic.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #174]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergMay 6, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Agrees to $2000 for series of four or five articles, no less than twenty thousand words total. Would appreciate his providing appropriate illustrations. Please send photograph of himself other than the one they have already used, plus biographical sketch. Want to give the series good advance promotion.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #175]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergMay 13, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Sorry he found title frivolous, but would like to strike a personal note if possible. Doesn't believe the American Institute in Berlin would have wide enough interest.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #176]


To Prof. Hugo MunsterbergJune 27, 1910BPL 

Will have "The Case of the Reporter" set in type soon and send proofs to Danzig. Glad he likes the article on the German emperor. Can meet him at the office between four and five on Friday [July 1]. Would be good to talk things over before he sails.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #180]


To Prof. Hugo Munsterberg,  [in Berlin] May 13, 1911BPL 

The four articles too much like essays for McClure's. Rejected the idea for a piece on German theater for that very reason. Mr. McClure believes German methods superior to those of the U.S. and wants something informative along that line. Perhaps after he returns, he can provide that kind of thing?   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #192]


To Prof. Hugo Munsterberg [ in Berlin ]July 17, 1911, on McClure's letterhead ; BPL 

Mr. McClure will decide about the articles when he gets back. Expects him in a few days.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #201]


To Ferris GreensletDec. 2, [1920]Harvard 

Thanks for Elsie Sergeant's book. Overwhelmed with things to do. Will write to him soon about Mr. Llona, who wants to do a translation.   W. S. C.   [Stout #518]
