To Mr. MauriceJuly 30, [1922], from Bread Loaf InnUVa 

Sorry she is not at home and can't provide letters from ordinary readers.   Willa Cather   [Stout #611]

To Arthur B. Maurice,  Saturday [Oct. 1922?] , from New YorkPrinceton 

Would like to review Dorothy Canfield's next book, not this one. Too soon after she reviewed One of Ours.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #632]

To Dorothy Canfield FisherFeb. 27, [1924]UVt 

Letter came at a good time, when she was in bed partly to avoid social obligations, partly because of a stiff neck. Pleased to report people of Red Cloud crowned her picture with a laurel wreath. Has enjoyed reading The Doctor Looks at Literature [by Joseph Collins, 1923]. Recommends Mme Curie's book about her husband. Mother is still vexed by Sinclair Lewis's Babbitt. Unfortunately for Alfred Knopf, just when readers are prepared to buy books by her about the West she starts writing things where setting doesn't matter. P.S.: Is the yellow cat male or female?  Willa   [Stout #719]

To Mr. [Malcolm] WyerAug. 29, [prob. 1925], from Red Cloud, Nebr.BYU

To Mrs. Charlotte StanfieldOct. 16, [1926], from Jaffrey, N.H.UVa 

Glad to hear from her and get her correct address. Glad her health holds up. Please pass along greetings to Mrs. [Franz?] Boas. Hopes she will like the remembrance of a pleasanter New York, about 1904, in the new book. Can't stand New York now unless she gets away most of the year.   Willa Cather   [Stout #852]

To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  Wednesday [Dec. 15, 1926?] , from New YorkUVt 

Will write for as long as it takes to smoke a cigarette. Has been busy sending off Christmas presents. Niece Mary Virginia is coming to visit soon, no doubt traveling in something like the style of Queen Marie [of Romania, who traveled from Seattle to New York by train in November 1926 with great publicity]. The queen stopped off in Red Cloud [on Nov. 11], by the way, and was presented a copy of One of Ours. New book [Archbishop] will be serialized starting in January. Writing it gave her a feeling of great happiness.   Willa   [Stout #865]

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 Marie M. MeloneyAug. 26, [1934?], from Grand MananColumbia 

Just received her letter written a month ago. Sorry she didn't get to inscribe the book for J. M. Barrie.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1233]
