To Perceval Gibbon,  in Mortlake, England Feb. 2, 1909 on McClure's letterhead UVa

Have not seen any of his work for some time. Please ask Mr. Pinker [his agent?] to send some. Can promise a quick reading.    Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #153]

To James B. Pinker,  [in London] Feb. 20, 1909, on McClure's letterhead ; UVa 

Mr. Gibbon is the best paid of any of their story writers. Please state expectation when sending stories. Sorry Mr. McClure sometimes misplaces manuscripts or is slow to return them, but if sent to her personally they will get prompt attention.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #155]

To Rev. James Robert Henry,  Tuesday [June 22, 1897] Drew U (Adams 140) 

Has to write to him since he will not come to see her. Is starting to accept Lyda [Axtell's] estimation that he is inconsistent. Is leaving Wednesday for a month. Has finished reading Gibbon [ Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire ]! Has he? Will remember how nice he has been; he was the first genuine friend she made in Pittsburgh. Will attend his Sunday School class when she returns. His Christianity is admirable and good-hearted. Goodbye.   Willa Cather
