To Mrs. Alfred Carstens [of Fremont, Nebr.]Nov. 21, 1932WCPM 

Doesn't answer all the letters she gets, but enjoyed Mrs. Carstens's; almost like a visit home. Surprised at the question of why she hasn't written about religion, since so many people find two of her books steeped in it. Hopes that doesn't mean she doesn't recognize Catholicism as religion. Is a Protestant herself, but it was Catholicism that preserved Christianity between 300 A.D. and Martin Luther. Wishes Christians would be better informed about history and more broad-minded.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1133]
