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 R. L. ScaifeDec. 8, [1918]Harvard 

Have copies been sent to New Republic and Bookman? What is the decision about Albertieri's book on dance?   Willa S. Cather   [Stout #444]

To Ferris Greenslet,  Friday [Mar. 1919 or after] Harvard 

Hugh Walpole's phrase in Bookman—"one of the very finest of all American novels"—might be good for the dust jacket along with Mencken's comment.   W. S. C.   [Stout #454]

To Ferris GreensletOct. 18, [1919], from New YorkHarvard 

The Bookman that he spoke of in his October 14 note has arrived. Likes the ad. Swedish edition of O Pioneers! has also arrived. When he reprints, will he please change the color of the binding? Let her know when she can phone him—doesn't have her own phone just now. Will get back to work on "Claude" Monday after this [October 27].   W. S. C.   [Stout #480]

To Ferris GreensletDec. 28, 1919, from New YorkHarvard 

Hopes he will be in New York before January 7. Please change the mustard-color binding of O Pioneers!. If the company doesn't want to bother with the book, how much would they want for the rights to it? Has agreed to let Knopf bring out a new edition of The Troll Garden in early spring. Will make sure it isn't at the same time as "Claude." P.S.: The Bookman ad was the only time they were willing to make bold claims for the quality of her books.  Willa Cather   [Stout #489]
