To [Burges] JohnsonSept. 21, 1940Amherst 

Yes, may use the quotation as revised, with an explanatory note that it was sent to a friend's son. Otherwise will be deluged by letters from students wanting her to explain this and that. Mostly sends a form letter to students and to English teachers. Such correspondence has delayed completion of her new book.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1490]

To Ferris GreensletMay 3, 1943Harvard 

Sending a request from Burges Johnson, who appears to think he will get anything he asks. He wants to use an entire chapter. Has referred him to Houghton Mifflin, but suggests they refuse. The College English Association has done some good things, but even for them does not care to let down protections around My Ántonia. Even this past year, with the war going on, it sold over 2,500 copies.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1628]

To Merle Johnsonn.d.NYPL 

The write-up is accurate except for her birth date. Was born in 1876, not 1875 [actually, 1873].   Willa Cather   [Stout #1808]
