    Note Relating to Cather: In an 1897 Home Monthly article Cather writes: "Anyone who has never sat in the hall of Cedric the Saxon, never laughed with the poor jester, never watched the fight from the window beside Rebecca of York, has missed some of the good things of life." In an 1899 Courier article Cather writes: "Consider, for instance, the masterly and yet laborious method by which Scott constructs his stage, assembles his dramatis personae and produces his atmosphere."
