Thanks for the Christmas box. Especially enjoyed the steamed pudding. Mother sent aprons and other kitchen things. This brings Merry Christmas. P.S.: Publisher sent two Venetian glass bottles.  Willie   [Stout #568]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodSept. 1, [1922], from Grand MananWCPM 

Very touched by her letter about "Claude." Used to fear that her own people would never care about her writing. Claude and his mother are her tribute to Nebraska. Is sending her letter to Isabelle.   Willa   [Stout #614]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodNov. 16, [1924?]WCPM 

Appreciates her kindness to mother and to Margie. Loved Margie with the special love one reserves for children or those whose minds never grow up. Enjoyed cooking for her and caring for her a little when she went home. They understood each other. Is fairly well; writing on The Professor's House, which should be out next fall. Funny to think of Jessie going around with the movie people on A Lost Lady!   Willie   [Stout #754]

"For Carrie Sherwood. This was the first time I walked off on my own feet—everything before was half read and half an immitation [sic] of writers whom I admired. In this one I hit the home pasture and found that I was Yance Sorgeson [Sorgenson; Webster County farmer] and not Henry James.   Willa Cather   [Stout #922]

Awarding of honorary degree at Columbia was an occasion of dignity; glad Carrie and Mary persuaded her to accept. Hard to shop for stained glass window, so will let it wait until fall.
