To Miss Van Tuyll,  [at Houghton Mifflin] May 24, [1915], from New YorkHarvard 

Very pleased that she likes the story. Doesn't want a picture of herself published unless she gets a good one this summer at the cliff dwellings. Will get one taken by a photographer if she must, but it will only be disillusioning to the public.   Willa S. Cather   [Stout #307]

To Miss Van Tuyll [at Houghton Mifflin]Dec. 4, [1917]Harvard 

The sample of heavy lettering is what she had in mind, but the accent over the initial "A" needs to be more distinct.   Willa Cather   [Stout #401]

To Carl Van DorenJuly 30, [1921], from TorontoPrinceton 

Has been noticing his writing on authors in their own styles, and likes what he did with her. Believes her new novel will be her best yet, but he will still probably think it formless. He can return her copy of The Troll Garden when she gets back to New York.   Willa Cather   [Stout #549]
