To Zoë AkinsDec. 4, [1942?]Huntington 

Didn't tell her when they spoke on the telephone last summer that reason for going into the hospital was to have gall bladder and appendix removed. Operation went well, but recovery difficult. Went from 126 pounds to 110. Dreadful heat during August and September made matters worse. Is now feeling better and up to about 115, but still hasn't felt like shopping and dresses all too big. She has surely realized something was wrong for some time; recalls her asking once if she had offended in some way. Of course, they have always had different ideological views, but it's true, was cross and irritable. Hopes to develop greater patience now, maybe even with filmmakers who take advantage of fine old books. [some of letter cut away] Likes a good film, such as Noel Coward's, but absolutely hates filmed versions of classics. Anyway, Happy New Year.   Willa   [Stout #1599]

To Father Maline [typographical error for Malone?]Mar. 3, 1947UVa 

Yes, may quote the few lines about Father Noel Chabanel,whom she found very interesting, more than any of his fellow martyrs.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1753]
