To Cyril ClemensSept. 27, 1937UVa 

Does not recognize initials F. S. and does not remember visiting anyone in Bronx Park. Neither she nor Ida Tarbell makes it a practice to go to literary teas. Whoever told him that was not truthful.   Willa S. Cather, signed by Sarah J. Bloom with note "dictated by Miss Cather."   [Stout #1373]

To Viola Roseboro'Feb. 12, 1944UVa 

Has thought of her often this winter, not just because of Ida Tarbell's death but because of the world's death. So glad Roseboro' was able to travel before this disaster of a war. Why did the world have to come to destruction in their lifetimes? and after they had already been through one war? Heard Sir James Jeans say humans want to believe the world will live forever, since they know they personally cannot. So why does their generation have to see this? Hasn't written because so many of her younger relatives have had their lives uprooted by the war. Hates to think of Nebraska boys off on Pacific islands, where the suffering is the worst. Human fallibility brought it on—or no, it was scientists who brought it on. Would like to come see her, but has not been well since gallbladder operation.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1659]

To Ida Tarbelln.d.Allegheny 

Must be receiving many flowers today. Shares her belief in the Bible.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1775]

To Ida Tarbelln.d., from New YorkAllegheny 

Sending a check for Mr. McClure.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1777]
