To R. L. ScaifeMay 12, [1915], from New YorkHarvard 

Please have foreign words set in italics. Copyeditor didn't in O Pioneers!. Also names of operatic roles. Hopes he has a proofreader who is fluent in Spanish and someone who can check the German used in the music lessons.   Willa S. Cather   [Stout #304]

Stores in Lincoln say they are unable to get copies. One has never heard of the book or the poster either.   W. S. Cather   [Stout #326]

To R. L. ScaifeOct. 30, [1915], from PittsburghHarvard 

Thinks the ad is unexciting. Why not quote some of the really live statements in reviews? Has redone the ad proposing some other quotations. [Encloses example.] Has sent her Nation to Will Owen Jones for reprint.   Willa Cather   [Stout #329]

To Ferris GreensletNov. 1, [1915], from PittsburghHarvard 

Has written to McClure about providing a sketch, but he is away in Texas. Will try to write the article for Book News if he will send more specific instructions. Let Mr. Scaife know about the quotable reviews in the Boston Advertiser and the New Bedford Standard. P.S.: Wondering if it will be reviewed in the Atlantic.  Willa Cather   [Stout #330]

To Ferris Greenslet,  Monday [Jan. 31, 1916?] Harvard 

Sending H. L. Mencken's article [in Smart Set January 1916?]. Has he seen Hugh Walpole's article in Bookman?   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #348]

To H. L. MenckenMay 2, [1916?], from New YorkNYPL 

Enclosing the story she had told him about. Hopes he doesn't object to an indirect method of narration. Appreciates his review of The Song of the Lark.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #355]

To H. L. MenckenMay 12, 1916, from New YorkNYPL 

True, the story suggests Lillian Nordica, though there are only two specifics that resemble her life, the shipwreck and the dispute over the will. Yes, her last husband, George Young, is still alive. Let her know by mail if he is going to be in town, as she has had her telephone disconnected. P.S.: Truly doesn't see how Young could object to the story.  Willa S. Cather   [Stout #358]
