To Annie Adams FieldsJuly 13, [1909], from aboard the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse ; Harvard 

Her letter was a comfort, especially the account of how peaceful Jewett was. Keeps dreaming they are both still there together. Receipt of this letter will show she has landed.    Willa   [Stout #163]

To Amy LowellMar. 8, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; Harvard

To Witter BynnerMay 19, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; Harvard 

Is glad to send the verses he asked for. Gives permission to reprint.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #178]

To Norman FoersterJuly 20, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; UNL 

Is pleased to see his success. Looking forward to his article on Gilbert White. Always expected him to write well, if he could get beyond youthful egoism. Since they have no book publishing now, can't consider his book of nature essays. Suggests Doubleday Page, which bought them out, or Houghton Mifflin. Ferris Greenslet there an old friend. For the magazine, more interested in content and a style more scientific than literary, designed to convey information. P.S.: Has been running the magazine alone past six months, as Mr. McClure has been ill. Will be going abroad this winter.  Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #182]

To Ferris GreensletDec. 13, [1914], from PittsburghHarvard 

Will finish the novel by summer at the latest. It will be twice as long as O Pioneers! and more interesting. How about calling it The Song of the Lark?   Willa Cather   [Stout #291]

Making record progress on the book. Not going to New York until February 1. Hopes he can indeed stop the war while he is in England!   Willa Cather   [Stout #292]
