To Blanche KnopfOct. 17, [1929], from Jaffrey, N.H.HRC 

Will stay three more weeks, so won't see Blanche before she sails. Book going well. A quiet book, mostly Quebec; wants it to be good. Is enjoying the out-of-doors, and her quiet room at the Grosvenor not available for a while yet. Best wishes for the trip. Please see Isabelle and send a report on how she is. Willa Cather. P.S.: Please send a copy of Zona Gale's new book. [Stout #983]

To Blanche Knopf,  Sunday [Oct. 27, 1929? Note: Oct. 29, perhaps date of receipt, written at top by B. K., but year is uncertain. Reference to Quebec would seem to place it in 1928, but reference to Gale's book would seem to link it to Oct. 17, 1929 letter, datable as to year by the location in Jaffrey] HRC 

Expects to be in town November 22 but will be in Quebec between this date and then. Please keep the ticket so it won't get lost. Likes Zona Gale's book.   W. S. C.   [Stout #986]

To Zona GaleNov. 25, 1929HSW 

Won't be able to get to Portage; must go to Pasadena soon after Christmas. Keeps wanting to quote Kent in King Lear: "Fortune, turn thy wheel." Read Gale's book with grim humor. Impossible to live in isolation but impossible to avoid harming others if one isn't isolated. Has been wanting to talk with her about a particular matter. Will she be in New York before Christmas?   [Stout #991]
