To Sara TeasdaleMay 10, [1931], from Pasadena, Calif.Wellesley  typed transcription at NYPL.

Brought her letter along to California, where mother has been in sanitarium almost three years. Has been with her a lot of the time and has lost track of friends. Book just finished helped her hold together. Zoë has been a good friend. Please send a collection of selected poems. New poets don't let emotion blossom in their poems.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1052]

To Pat KnopfAug. 15, [1933], from Grand MananWellesley 

Sorry to hear his vacation was spent having his appendix out. But he will enjoy New Mexico more without one, when he gets to go. Walking a lot here on trails along the cliffs. Saw the Italian air fleet pass over this after-noon—hated their looks.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1188]

To Margaret Crofts,  Saturday [Mar. 31, 1934?] LC

To Lydia [Lambrecht]Aug. 10, [1936], from Grand MananWCPM 

Did not forget her mother's birthday, but had twin nieces visiting and was busy with them. Has had with her at Grand Manan the quilt they made her.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1321]

To Zoë Akins,  n.d. [Aug. 1936?] , from Grand MananHuntington 

Enjoying this cool, green island, the most restful place in the world even without amenities. Nineteen-year-old nieces there with her and love it. Their first time to see the ocean. Feels sure Zoë's house would be too organized for her. Prefers a couch of junipers at the edge of a cliff.   Willa   [Stout #1322]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodSept. 7, [1936], from Grand MananWCPM 

Sorry to hear of Margie [Miner] Gund's illness. Has worried a lot about Irene this year. Weather has been nice at Grand Manan, but hasn't enjoyed time there very much. So many deaths and illnesses among people they know there. Did enjoy the twins. Loves Carrie more all the time. P.S.: Going back to New York next week.  Willie   [Stout #1325]

To Mary Miner CreightonDec. 6, [1936]Newberry 

Sorry not to have written in so long. Just back from Washington, where an old friend died. Did not know about Margie's death until later. How is Irene? She never answers letters. May have said or done something that offended her. Still gets the Red Cloud newspaper. Heard Evelyn Vesty was there for Louie's funeral. He was one of those who never grow up. Maybe that's the way to be happy. Glad her father did not live to see these hard times. Had hoped to be in Red Cloud for Christmas, but will not be able to get away. Has just received a huge gardenia bush from the Menuhins for her birthday. Would like to go see the Menuhins, but can't rest when she is with them, they are too exciting and she enjoys them too much. Did enjoy the twins' visit this summer. Sorry to be so gloomy, but is feeling tired. Always so much pointless activity when something new is published.   Willie   [Stout #1335]
