To Carrie Miner Sherwood,  Sunday [1917?] from New YorkWCPM 

Enclosing the best war book she has read, by a woman from Poland. Honest account of the terrible things she witnessed and experienced. Easy to see why the French fear German domination so.   Willie   [Stout #385]

To Carrie MinerOct. 29, [1917]UVa 

Has been in New Hampshire and only now learned of Carrie's mother's death. It may have been a mercy. A character much like Mrs. Miner [ Mrs. Harling ] is in the novel she is working on. Book will be dedicated to Carrie and Irene. As one gets older, one's early impressions become clearer and more precious.   Willie Cather   [Stout #396]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodMar. 13, 1919 [actually 1918], from New YorkWCPM 

So glad to have her letter. Theirs is a lifelong friendship. Proud to hear of her work for the Red Cross. Has had a hard winter, with fuel shortage and illnesses, and the book will be delayed. Olive Fremstad helped get her through an attack of bronchitis; she wasn't working because there were no German operas this year. Is getting along well with Isabelle's husband now, having learned to like him. Was at the Wieners' house often before Mr. Wiener's death. A gracious family, unlike many wealthy Jews. Edith sends regards. Winter was hard on her, too, but of course worst on the poor people of the city.   Willie   [Stout #414]

To Irene Miner Weisz,  Monday [pm. Oct. 14, 1918] , from Red Cloud, Nebr.Newberry 

Will get to Chicago at 9 A.M. Thursday [Oct. 17] and leave for Toronto at four that afternoon. Hopes they can visit for a few hours.   Willa   [Stout #436]

To Irene Miner WeiszOct. 26, [1918], from TorontoNewberry 

Enclosing a review. Such a reader catches the whole better than those who concentrate on identifying originals for the characters. Please share with Carrie. Leaving for New York on the 30th.   Willie   [Stout #438]

To Carrie Miner SherwoodFeb. 11, [1919], from New YorkWCPM 

Sending some reviews; please share with Irene. The one in the Dial is the best. Former president of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, Edwin W. Winter, visited to tell her how he liked the book and now drops in like an old friend. Mostly feels glad that her father and Carrie like it.   Willie   [Stout #452]

To Irene Miner WeiszMar. 4, [1920], from New YorkNewberry 

Please encourage people to patronize Fanny Butcher's shop.   Willie   [Stout #500]
