Glad he likes "Grandmither." Seldom writes verse. Unfortunately, the poems Monroe included in her noted anthology [The New Poetry, 1917] were garbled. Sorry to have been without a telephone, so missed hearing from him when he was in town.   Willa Cather   [Stout #450]

Glad she is getting to have the year in Europe she was wanting when they talked in Jaffrey, but regrets they won't be able to see each other. Will be in Aix until early September and plans to sail for Quebec on September 20. Expects to be in Jaffrey again in October. P.S.: Hambourgs are in Austria.  Willa Cather   [Stout #697]

To George F. WhicherDec. 19, 1924PM 

Sorry she won't be able to see him in New York after Christmas; will be in Red Cloud. Sorry to hear about Mrs. Whicher's problem. Appreciates his asking her to come up for [to give?] the Clyde Fitch lectures, but can't do so this year. Maybe in a year or two.   Willa Cather   [Stout #762]

To Mrs. George WhicherOct. 16, [1925], from Shattuck Inn, Jaffrey, N.H.PM 

Niece Mary Virginia Auld is a freshman at Smith. Could Mrs. Whicher get in touch with her some time? The boys would enjoy her. Came here to work after a wonderful summer in New Mexico living like a Zane Grey character. Wishes Mrs. Whicher could have attended the birthday dinner for Robert Frost.   Willa Cather   [Stout #797]
