To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  Friday [Sept. 22, 1922?] , from New YorkUVt 

Returned home yesterday to find expressions of sympathy for bad reviews and regret that she tried to write a war novel. Only Dorothy's review shows understanding of the book. Knopf reports good sales, however—already 16,000 out of 37,000 printed. Won't Dorothy's own new book be published soon? [Rough Hewn, released October 20, 1922.] Eager to see her.   Willa   [Stout #621]

To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  Monday [Oct. 23, 1922?] UVt 

Has read her thick book [ Rough Hewn ]. Liked the French part best. Family very well done; the shameful mother accurate of a national type but original in fiction. Marise very well done without excess, but Neale would have been better with less said. He's too familiar, whereas the father is strongly felt but still a puzzle. Is planning to visit Dorothy's mother.   Willa   [Stout #635]
