To Ferris GreensletMar. 2, 1938Harvard 

Is recovering from influenza. Enjoyed reading about his meeting with Stephen Tennant and mother and stepfather, Sir Edward Grey. Didn't mean Grey was stern, but his interests and Stephen's utterly dissimilar. Very pleased with O Pioneers! in autograph edition. Did he hear the recital Hephzibah and Yehudi Menuhin gave in Boston? Such a joy to know them!   Willa Cather   [Stout #1401]

To Stephen TennantOct. 20, 1941Yongue , copy, not original

Likes the first version of the Lascar cover better than the second. Wonders if the British officer Percy Wyndham who fought in the American Revolution in Virginia was related to him. P.S.: Hand somewhat better but still can't write well.  Willa Cather   [Stout #1552]

To Percy MacKayeDecember 1, 1909 on McClure's Magazine letterheadDartmouth

Read his essay "The Civic Functions of the Theatre," but unfortunately Mr. McClure is not publishing anything on drama right now since he has already committed to running two plays serially soon. Thanks for sending it. She enjoyed reading the article.   Willa Sibert Cather
