To Mrs. Charlotte StanfieldJune 12, [1921], from TorontoUVa 

Sorry to have left town without seeing her and Mrs. [Franz?] Boas. Sinclair Lewis said such nice things in his Toronto lecture that she had to beg people to leave her alone so she could work. Health is better than when she left. Novel progressing. Sending a snapshot taken when she was in the Mediterranean.   Willa Cather   [Stout #544]

To Mrs. Charlotte Stanfield,  n.d. [pm. June 10, 1922] , from New YorkUVa 

Has been in the country with friends. Just found her note today. Has not been well. Only saw Mrs. [Franz?] Boas once all winter. Tonsillectomy was difficult, and she felt worse after she returned from the sanitorium. Also occupied with proofs. Sorry not to be available to visit.   Willa Cather   [Stout #600]

To Mrs. Charlotte StanfieldOct. 16, [1926], from Jaffrey, N.H.UVa 

Glad to hear from her and get her correct address. Glad her health holds up. Please pass along greetings to Mrs. [Franz?] Boas. Hopes she will like the remembrance of a pleasanter New York, about 1904, in the new book. Can't stand New York now unless she gets away most of the year.   Willa Cather   [Stout #852]

To Yehudi MenuhinJanuary 22, [1938] inserted into Schubert, Franz. Franz Schubert's Letters and Other Writings. New York: Knopf, 1928; ; Drew U (Menuhin 19) 

Cannot get German version of book, and people traveling don't need large books, so is sending him a small one of the correspondence of an artist who died young [ Franz Schubert ]. Very sad letters, but likes to believe that if Yehudi had been there, his insight would have helped Schubert. But don't his beautiful creations overpower his hardships, and is not hunger irrelevant to one whose mind is on fire? Happy Birthday, and wishes him long years of accomplishment and joy.   Aunt Willa
