To Mary Virginia CatherFebruary 21, [1919]UNL-Southwick 

A British journalist from the London Daily Mail is coming to do an interview, someone she met at Lady Spyer's, so doesn't have much time. He says she is well-liked in London. Doesn't have the flu and doesn't expect to get it, since didn't catch it from Edith. Was planning to have operation this week, but Dr. Patterson's treatments may be enough. Sees that the baby [Helen Louise Cather?] is in Red Cloud, so know she is busy. Received many flowers for Valentine's Day from boys who like her writing. Had an excellent Friday tea with many British people, a Spanish tenor, and many youthful writers. Is very proud that so many young writers respect her work. Josephine cooks wonderfully, and really appreciated the fresh butter from Bess and Auntie at Christmas. During the blizzard last week went for a walk in Central Park. Story about Mrs. Meyers was something! Loves her and Miss Blumer's dresses and wears them often. Give regards to Ethel and the baby. PS: Enclosed letter is for Virginia.  Willie 

To H. G. DwightApril 5, [1916], from 5 Bank Street, New YorkAmherst 

[Also included: a calling card with "Miss Willa Sibert Cather/ Fridays/ Five Bank Street" printed on it, with a note in Cather's hand saying that she is welcoming visitors on Friday afternoons until May 1; a second calling card, with "Miss Willa Sibert Cather" printed on it and, in what appears to be Isabelle McClung Hambourg's hand, "Mr. Dwight—We shall be here by half past eight—Will you please wait for us —"]Thanks for dropping her name in the preface to his wonderful book [Stamboul Nights, Garden City, N.Y., Doubleday, Page & Company, 1916], which she just received from Pittsburgh. Knows three of the stories, and will know the others within a day (we write slowly but read quickly). Please come to visit some Friday. May and Marie Willard left recently. Perhaps Roselle, New Jersey, is too distant, but hopes he can make the journey some Friday.   Willa Cather
