To Julian StreetOct. 1, 1942Princeton 

Appreciates his good wishes. It must have been even worse for Mrs. Street, recovering in Tucson in 108 degree weather. Won't be going to the Berkshires after all, but will be at the Williams Inn in Williamstown through November. Will register under the name Winifred Carter.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1593]

To Ferris GreensletOct. 22, 1943Harvard 

Has received two letters from him. Since he mentions he has been fishing, assumes he is well. The second [saying that they need to reprint O Pioneers! and would like to do so with another company's imprint along with their own on the title page in order to utilize that company's quota of paper, under wartime rationing] is most unwelcome. Why should her books be victimized, since they are not long and do not sell huge numbers? Understands that in England the system is to trim down popular hits in order to protect small-market books. This might mean, for example, trimming part of the margin off The Robe [ Douglas ] to save paper for printing Julian Huxley or T. S. Eliot. Is not signing the consent form he sent.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1643]
