To Irene Miner Weisz,  Monday [Oct. 31, 1921] , from LincolnNewberry 

Heard that some people in the audience thought she used the word "smart" to mean "shrewd." She meant it in the sense of style. Glad she came, because Dr. Tyndale enjoyed it.   Willa   [Stout #557]

To Irene Miner WeiszNov. 10, [1921?], from New YorkNewberry 

Still doesn't know the amount of the hotel bill Irene paid, and would like to pay her debt. Isabelle sends thanks for the pleasant stay in Omaha. In Chicago, after her [Cather's] speech at the College Club, there was a dinner given by university classmates. Then went with Fanny Butcher to visit major book businesses, very tiring. Will send some good photos taken in Omaha.   Willie   [Stout #560]

Please send enclosed letter to Irene. Tired out from Lincoln and Chicago. Isabelle leaving Saturday.   Willie   [Stout #562]

To Irene Miner WeiszDec. 10, [1921?]Newberry 

Doesn't remember giving her money for ticket to Lincoln. Is sure she owes more of the hotel bill. Has ordered photos from Omaha. Josephine is back for half days; cooks a French dinner every night and will soon have her ailing stomach better. New doctor admires Ántonia but would rather he paid attention to her intestines.   Willa   [Stout #565]

Thanks for the comfortable silk undervests. Health is better.   Willie   [Stout #576]

If it's true that Irene is going to Red Cloud, might they travel together from Chicago? Will speak in Omaha November 27. They could have a good visit. Hopes to stay through Christmas. Is enjoying Claude's success, though appendicitis attacks have dragged her down.   Willa   [Stout #637]

To Irene Miner WeiszJan. 24, [1923], from New YorkNewberry 

Enclosing ridiculous letter from Hettie Skeen, trying to fake literary awareness. Is almost well from her cold. Will dine at the Knopfs' on Monday with Myra Hess, pianist. "Claude" still selling well. New edition of April Twilights beautifully and expensively done.   Willie   [Stout #668]
