To S. S. McClure,  Wednesday [Mar. 13, 1912?] Indiana 

Mrs. McClung had a stroke Saturday night and was unconscious until Tuesday afternoon. Now has some body movement and dim consciousness. Seems to have a chance. Is resting, but the fright of this illness has caused her [Cather] to regress somewhat. Glad he likes "Spanish Johnny," who was a real person she knew as a child. When will he sail?   Willa Cather   [Stout #217]

To S. S. McClureApr. 22, [1912], from Winslow, Ariz.Indiana 

Will be glad to assist with autobiography. Is enjoying her trip, especially seeing pueblos and cliff dwellings. A wonderful part of the world. Planning to see a Moki [Hopi] snake dance and go into Mexico with Douglass. News of the Titanic is shocking.   Willa Cather   [Stout #222]
