To Dr. Julius TyndaleSept. 21, [1921], from Red Cloud, Nebr.UVa 

He may find this telegram from her publisher interesting. It's about the new novel. [Encloses copy of telegram from Alfred Knopf praising One of Ours, still in typescript.]   Willa Cather   [Stout #553]

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 Dorothy Canfield FisherFeb. 6, [1922], from New YorkUVt 

Negotiating with Mr. Davison at Bread Loaf, but he is awfully vague about details. Would she be willing to read the proofs of the new novel, to watch for anything false or misleading?   Willa   [Stout #578]

To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  Saturday [Feb. 11, 1922?] UVt 

Thanks for the suggestion on negotiating with Mr. Davison. Will send page proofs when they come.   Willa   [Stout #579]

To Wilfred DavisonFeb. 15, [1922]Middlebury 

Summer plans still not clear, but believes she could come to Bread Loaf for part of July, for expenses plus $200 for a series of five lectures. Usually gets $200 per lecture or more.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #580]

To Dorothy Canfield Fisher,  n.d. [March 1922?] , apparently a fragment ; UVt 

Proofs have arrived, and Dorothy's questions will help her make improvements. Is certain, though, about the independent or traveling guns of the British. Incident of the killing of the German with the locket was from something a young officer told her; she used it because he didn't seem to understand and she liked that. The little girl and the terrible baby also from something told her by a soldier. Used the diary of a physician [Dr. Frederic Sweeney, Jaffrey, N.H.] for the flu epidemic on the transport ship. Is sure of the date U.S. troops went into battle at Chateau Thierry. Claude's feeling about David's violin was from her own feeling of inferiority when they were in France in 1902. Knows readers won't give the book a chance because it is a war novel.   [Stout #588]

To Wilfred DavisonJuly 2, [1922?], from New YorkMiddlebury 

Sorry to be late getting to Bread Loaf, but expects to be there by mid-month. A friend, Miss Edith Lewis, will probably come, too. Could she get space at the inn?   Willa Cather   [Stout #608]
