To Orson LowellNov. 15, 1909, on McClure's letterhead ; UVa 

Keeps hoping they can get some of his work into the magazine. Hopes the rumor that he does not want to work for McClure's is false. Has some stories on hand they would like to turn over to him [for illustration?].   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #165]

To Orson LowellNov. 18, 1909, on McClure's letterhead ; UVa 

Glad to receive his reassuring letter.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #166]

To Amy LowellMar. 8, 1910, on McClure's letterhead ; Harvard 

Can't use article on Harden [?]. Mr. McClure has commissioned one from William Archer. Appreciates her thinking of them.   Willa Sibert Cather   [Stout #171]

To Elizabeth Shepley SergeantNov. 19, 1920, from New YorkPM 

Just back from France after a stormy crossing. Has a sprained ankle, and the apartment is a mess. Edith sick in bed. Trying to manage everything with one helper. Envies her being in New Mexico. Has seen Amy Lowell's good review of her book.   W. S. C.   [Stout #515]

To Mabel Dodge LuhanMay 23, 1925Beinecke 

Has just returned from Maine and found her letter waiting. Going to Grand Canyon, then to ranch at Española. May not get to Taos at all, but if it appears she can, will check and see whether there is a house available. Would like to see her house there. Saw Elsie Sergeant yesterday. Sorry to hear Amy Lowell died.   Willa   [Stout #783]

To Ferris GreensletMay 5, 1928, telegram ; Harvard 

No, can't undertake biography of Amy Lowell.   Willa Cather   [Stout #932]

To Mary AustinMay 9, 1928, from New YorkHuntington 

Could as soon think of writing a history of China as to write the biography of Amy Lowell that Greenslet was trying to get her to do. Might consider taking up Austin's suggestion [?] but is not writing now. Father died in March. Has been to Mayo Clinic on the way back to New York. May go to California, where mother is visiting Douglass. Troubles almost too much just now.   Willa Cather   [Stout #934]

To Ferris GreensletNov. 15, 1942, from New YorkHarvard 

Has just come back from several weeks in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Would have gone to Jaffrey, but the train ride would have been more tiring. Housekeeper ill; getting along as best they can with only a cleaning woman and man. Curtains all down and furniture in dust covers. Please delay his visit until later in the month. P.S.: No, met Woodberry only at 148 Charles Street. Once went with him to call on Amy Lowell, who, after having invited him to see some manuscripts by Keats, did not show him a one.  Willa Cather   [Stout #1595]
