To Thomas S. Jones, Jr.Nov. 11, 1931Columbia 

Sorry her letter seemed curt. Has learned to be suspicious of approaches by strangers. Glad to see he shares her appreciation for that period of Canadian history. Does he know the Jesuit Relations and Abbé Scott's Life of Bishop Laval?   Willa Cather   [Stout #1085]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodFeb. 9, [1932], from Grosvenor Hotel, New YorkWCPM 

Thanks for checking on the mortgage. Is recovering from influenza. English reviews of Shadows all very positive. Is sorrowing over the Lindbergh baby.   Willie   [Stout #1095]

To Helen SpragueMar. 20, [1932?]WCPM 

Weather has been cold since she got back, but once she got over the flu has been going to concerts and operas. Sees Virginia about once a week. Despairing about the Lindberghs' baby! Police don't seem to be doing anything, and no one respects their privacy. When her child arrives, don't smother him with motherly doting. That ruins children.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1102]

To Fred OtteNov. 28, 1940WCPM 

Glad to receive letter and birthday wishes. Was surprised the book was released on her birthday. Can still remember teaching at that grimy school. Enjoyed teaching and might have continued if S. S. McClure hadn't called her away.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1508]
